Barb Sorensen, an acustic guitar singer and songwriter, will entertain with songs of the Civil War era.
 
Barb began singing, writing and performing music as a child.  Her first instrument was a harmonica from her parents in preschool. She later went on to pick up the recorder, the oboe, the saxophone, the piano and the guitar. Besides the concert and symphonic experience, she has also played with pop, rock and blues and jazz bands. After graduating from college with a degree in Chemistry and German and a minor in Music, she decided to pursue her first love...Music. Today she is an internationally touring  performer and singer, as well as the founder of her own growing music/video production company/independent record label Emerald City Music Productions, Inc.  In her spare time she also produces a show on the local access channel on AT&T Broadband, called MUSE and it is about arts, artists and the creative process.
