Folk Art

Whether name-checked by Kimya Dawson or cited by Alternative Press as the greatest folk singer of the 21st century, Paul Baribeau's passion for spinning songs from joy and heartbreak is unmatched. A case in point is his "Ten Things," in which the Michigan native earnestly implores listeners to make a list of things to accomplish before the inevitable.

The indie-folk singer/songwriter stops by the Trunk Space to share the ups and downs of his life through an acoustic guitar that's as alive as any electric ax.
