“David Barrett is the leader of DB3, an instrumental band. Making a success out of an instrumental group is not easy,

but David has a knack of writing very memorable progressive rock tunes.

He is also blessed with the ability to deliver these tunes in a unique way using his collection of electric and acoustic instruments. Couple this with an impressive collection of amps & effects David manages to colour and texture his compositions with lasting impact. David is a rare combination of imagination, dedication and raw talent.” – Terry Brown, producer.

A Canadian composer and performer, specializing in his own brand of instrumental progressive rock, David Barrett has been featured in international magazines including Guitar Player, Premier Guitar, and Vintage Guitar.

In 2010, David Barrett founded the David Barrett Trio, an instrumental progressive rock power trio. Their debut album was produced by Alex Lifeson (Rush), Alan Parsons (Pink Floyd), and Richard Chycki (Dream Theater). They followed that release with the album David Barrett Trio II, the live concert DVD, A Whisper To Thunder, and an EP produced by Terry Brown (Rush), featuring vocalist Michael Sadler (Saga). David continues to work with Terry Brown conducting recording master classes, and producing collaborations with such acclaimed Canadian musicians as Jacob Moon, and the upcoming Canadian power duo Crown Lands.

In addition to DB3, David Barrett has released a dozen solo albums, featuring acoustic, electric, classical, mandolin, laud, and steel guitar. David performs solo concerts in North America, and conducts guitar retreats at Chalet Studio in Ontario, Canada, and Sotuta de Peon, Yucatan, Mexico.

David is an endorsing artist for innovative companies such as Dagmar Customs Guitars, Mack Guitar Amplifiers, Pigtronix Futuristic Audio Technology, and D’Addario Canada.

Oshawa Music Week

March 29 - April 4

Celebrating its 20th year, Oshawa Music Week (formerly Reel Music Festival) brings six days of entertaining and educational events, celebrating the Durham Region’s rich music culture. The festival strives to develop, grow, support, and unite the music community within the city of Oshawa and throughout the Durham Region. Each event under the scope of Oshawa Music Week is tailored for the diverse members of Durham’s cultural landscape, ranging from entertainment for music lovers to education for aspiring and established music professionals.

Taking place in downtown Oshawa and at Durham College's Oshawa campus, Oshawa Music Week will host concerts showcasing Durham Region’s musical talent, a music summit, a songwriting competition, a lip-sync battle and an award show recognizing contributors to the local music industry with winners chosen by the community.

Oshawa Music Week has been host to many notable guest speakers, emerging musical talent, and budding music business managers. Last year, the festival was honoured to feature performances by Haviah Mighty, Rural Alberta Advantage, Kelsi Mayne, Mappe Of, Rooks McCoy, The Beresfords, DJ NDN, Robyn Ottolini and MT Clips among many others.
