BPA friends Todd Erler and Bob Nash are Rye & Barley, a North Kitsap folk duo with a Celtic bent. Rye & Barley has been playing upbeat Irish and Scottish Pub tunes around Kitsap and slightly beyond for about 10 years. As brothers from other mothers, the duo’s personalities, politics, and life paths are very different, but they remain cemented together by their love of music, a good Irish whiskey, and fishing. They have been known to turn any venue or event into an Irish pub in a matter of minutes, regaling any crowd with the stories and histories of their deep list of traditional tunes. They love songs about drinking, sailing, drinking and sailing, sailing while drinking, love both requited and unrequited, murder, and good old-fashioned Irish rebel tunes. You can find them on Spotify or Facebook as “Rye and Barley.”
