Home: Welcome

Harry Barry was a Scottish singer-songwriter and composer. His untimely death in 2013 came as he celebrated 50 years in the music business. His legacy includes everything from songs and jingles to poetry and comedy – and it's all here on this website.



Harry was born after the 2nd World War in Viewpark, Lanarkshire and spent his early years dodging piano lessons and listening to the wireless. He was proud to call himself a Baby Boomer.

At the tender age of 13, his mammy bought him his first drumkit from the Co ...and the rest, as they say, is history.

He left school after playing drums on the desks at the back of the class one too many times...then discovered rock and roll.

Hearing Roy Orbison's Only The Lonely for the first time on the juke box in Annie McGregor's cafe in Uddingston shaped his entire musical life.

He went on to have an extraordinary career. His legacy includes everything from solo singles for RCA and Warner Bros to jingles and songs, football anthems, traditional Scottish classics, a solo album and even a play.

And here is where you will find it.
