(Madison Area Music Ass'n)
Barb's an amazing guitarist, and the band was great. She clearly brings the other musicians together, and she brought fresh interpretation and meaning to old standards. I have also seen her perform solo, and her technical skill and musicianship is just superb. A thoroughly enjoyable performance.
Tara Ayres, Vocalist
I highly recommend the music of one of my favorite guitarists, the incomparable Barb Cheron. Her clean tone and understanding of melody contribute to her highly listenable and entertaining jazz interpretations.
James Eisele, Singer/Songwriter/Musician
“Running Free” is a great CD for that Sunday drive with head-bobbin’ tunes that recall the groove of ’60s George Benson – Madison Magazine
The local jazz guitarist was showered with three Madison Area Music Awards…She puts herself in the running for a few more with a new CD, Running Free – Isthmus Newspaper
The tunes swing and have a great Joe Pass-bluesy feel – Tung Le, featured artist on Guitar9 Records
Barb is a marvelous talent with a low-key, genuine stage presence that accentuates her skill. She is a pleasure to listen to - and even more to just be around in conversation post-performance. Her character comes alive in her music. Be lucky enough to hear her. Luckier still to know her!
