We’ll get the humor started with Chester County (PA) native Barry Rabin whose songs tackle such critical social issues as horse castration, dancing with poultry and the star-crossed love lives of New Jersey condom factory workers. When he is not writing and singing funny songs, he can be spotted practicing law in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. His motto is “Write the songs that haven’t been written yet . . . and for good reason!” Barry performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival this summer and will be sharing his funny songs and commentary on the day’s events.
