Barry "Bones" Patton is a native of Winfield, KS but has traveled the world with his musical abilities. Barry began playing the bones as a small child having received his first set from long time family friend Cecil Hiatt. Coming from a family steeped in music, Barry found his own place in the Bluegrass scene playing this rhythm instrument that dates back to 1600bc. Predominately used in Celtic music, Barry has introduced a new generation to bones as a current age rhythm instrument. Barry has mastered the unique style of playing with both hands known as "double fisted" and is one of only a few in the world to take bones playing to this level.His talent has brought him to play with many artists such as Mason Williams, Vince Gill, Jana Jae, Beppe Gambetta, Tommy Emmanuel, Ricky Skaggs, Mumford and Sons, Riders in the Sky, Byron Berline, Dan Crary, Larry Gatlin and many other notable stars. He has appeared on the National TV show Nashville Now, the Meagan Mullally Show and in the second season of the HBO series Deadwood. Locally he has been a featured guest interview for Larry Hatteberg's People and Sierra Scott's It's All Good as well as guest appearances on Tulsa Now and the Rodeo Opry in Oklahoma City. Most recently he performed at LA's Geffen Theatre for Steve Martin at the annual Backstage at the Geffen Fundraiser.
