Folk singer Barry McGuire and Arhoolie Records founder Chris Strachwitz have been selected by the Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West) board to receive the Best of the West award for 2012.
McGuire, who will receive the Performer award, is best known for his 1965 recording of "Eve of Destruction" and for being an original member of  The New Christy Minstrels. Barry was cast as the male lead in the original Broadway production of  "Hair. Once again his voice was heard proclaiming the ideals of a radical generation. Dick Clark says, "When world events collide with 'Rock & Roll,' you get Barry McGuire."
Over the last 57 years Barry has averaged around a 100 shows a year sharing the stage with everyone from Sammy Davis Jr, Andy Williams, Al Hirt, Jonathon Winters, Andy Griffith, PeteFountain to Roger McGuinn, John and Michelle Phillips, Cass Elliott, Denny Doherty, BobGibson, The Rolling Stones, David Crosby, Gene Clark, Kenny Rogers….the list goes on and on.
During these years Barry recorded more than 40 albums.
Barry's current show is titled "Trippin' The Sixties. He says, "this is not a 'cover' show. It starts where Barry started; writing and recording his ?rst Gold record "Green Green" with The New Christy Minstrels. Then come all the stories about the people and songs of the '60s, people he hung out with, people he recorded, partied and performed with.
