Barry Elms MA
Macologist – Musician – Teacher
By day I am an IT specialist providing IT support for a local Social Enterprise Investment company. I have always loved fiddling with computers and technology, I’m good with people, and I’m a terrible computer programmer, so IT planning and support suits me very well! I’m a qualified Yoga and Chi Kung instructor, and currently teach Yoga Philosophy for Devon School of Yoga.
I am mainly a harmonica and harmonium player, however, I also play rhythm guitar reasonably competently, and enjoy playing bass and the washboard! My preferred music to listen to and play is Americana/Roots (blues, old time, jug band, bluegrass, country), and in addition often listen to/play folk, Irish/Celtic and rock music. I teach harmonica and harmonium for beginners.
I have been leading yoga mantra music sessions for well over 10 years, and currently lead sessions for Devon School of Yoga courses, as well as public sessions and at festivals. I usually play harmonium at these sessions, but have been known to play guitar and percussion too. I love acoustic music sessions, but I often play amplified – I have my own mini PA for my events, and happily play Chicago-style harp at jams and open mics.
