Delta Blues crosses in a scabby way with the Tex-Mex-Aussie-roots of a reckless globetrotter. Somerset Barnard was touring through Australia and the USA before he decided to throw everything away and travel the world.
He can be found playing anywhere from the streets of a Senegalese Village to the stage of A European Festival. His musical adventures have even led him to a play a part in a Bollywood Movie and work as a Sherpa in the Himalayas.A busy 2016 also saw Somerset share his music at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest, before returning to Europe to play several Festivals including the 37th international Musikfest in Waidhofen/Thaya and Acoustic Lakeside Festival.
His recent album ‘The Atlas Moth’, released in February 2016, brings together influences from his four years of travelling. A book is soon to be released of his Tales. A new album is also in the pipeline being recorded with his old band from New Orleans.
