Wonder Women: Stories From the Women Who Play Bass – Kirby Barber

In this month’s installment of Wonder Women; Stories from the Women Who Play Bass, we’re checking in with Kirby Barber. I first met Kirby at the Solo Bass Competition at Winter NAMM 2020, where she competed against an impressive international lineup of performers to become the second-place winner of the event.


She has been the recipient of the bass player of the year award with the BC Country Music Association multiple times and was a CCMA (Canadian Country Music Awards) Bass player of the Year nominee for the past three years. She has won songwriting awards from the GMA (Gospel Music Association) and has received a Juno nomination as a member of the bluegrass band The High Bar Gang. Kirby currently performs with artists that include Heidi Newfield, Bobby Messano, Aaron Pritchett, Shari Ulrich, Barney Bentall, Raquel Cole, as well as freelances and records with various other artists in Canada and the US.
