Early in 2006 Everett Brown, Mary Audette, and Tim Reilly formed Barnacle -- a high energy Celtic/sea music/folk band. Entrenched deeply in the traditions of the sea (Tim as rigger, sailor, chanteyman and Everett as member of the Wickford Express and Compass Rose, Barnacle sails into a variety of world ports, evolving from the band members' diverse musical backgrounds, ethnicities, and tastes--hence many ports, one sea. (Other members at times include Jon Cannon, and Armand Aromin.)Nominated as best New Act of 2009 by the Motif Magazine Music Awards.
