An award-winning band comprised of 

Barrett: Vocals & Guitar

Jamie "Black Cat Bone" Hatch: Bass

Doug MacLeod: Drums


Barrett - A 17 year veteran of the scene, Barrett cut his teeth by playing with members of Muddy Waters' 1970s band, Pinetop Perkins & Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin, in the late 90's.  Following that, he spent a combined 6 years in the internationally-acclaimed blues bands Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters and The Monster Mike Welch Band.  Barrett recorded his first recording (with neo-swing legend Jimbo Mathus producing) in North Mississippi in 2007.  He returned to his native New England and quickly enlisted some of the world's heaviest blues musicians - Ron Levy (organist for Albert King, BB King, Roomful of Blues, and countless more) and Per Hanson (drummers for Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters, Jimmy Rogers, David Maxwell, and more).  In 2013 Barrett's second album, The Long Fall, was released (produced by Cambridge's roots-rock king Dennis Brennan, and featuring the legendary organ trio lineup he had been working with all across new england ), and Barrett won a highly prestigious Boston Music Award, 2013 Blues Artist of the Year.


Jamie "Black Cat Bone" Hatch - A reformed guitarist, bassist Jamie Hatch brings the low end to the foreront.  His playing is big, full, and driving; he is a master at propelling the music forward, whether through playing hard or laying back.  Bringing a more jazz/free-oriented aesthetic to the band, Jamie "Black Cat Bone" is an integral voice to The Barrett Anderson Band, and is the sole voice for the unique, sub-100 hz. frequencies you hear on stage.


Doug MacLeod - The man who keeps the rhythm moving and the beat grooving, Doug MacLeod provides the central heartbeat for The Barrett Anderson Band.  HIs sense of  beat is funky and driving, equally informed by dual-drummer lineups such as The Grateful Dead & The Allman Brothers Band, and solo drum masters "Zigaboo" Modeliste, Al Jackson Jr., and Levon Helm, Doug brings a rocking' back beat groove that makes hips sway and feet tap.
