Thread Name: Origins: Got Any News of the Iceberg? (Les Barker)
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Have You Got Any News of the
Val (Crowhugger):

Les Barker was once interviewed on the late lamented Vicky Gabereau show. (Now that would be something to search the CBC archives for--two certifiable people with a microphone and an audience...). He used to be a CPA or somethin then became a certified Touring Comedic Poet/ Lunatic who tours folk clubs and festivals one else will have him I guess. We saw him at Winnipeg Folk Fest a few years ago.

He has a fondness for the unconsidered viewpoints in life...and can actually get audiences enthusiastically "singing" along with such jaunty choruses as...

"He was only a little mosquito
Why did you have to do that?
'E was only a little mosquito
But now 'e is feeling quite flat!
