Kearney Barton Collection

Seattle recording engineer Kearney Barton started crafting sounds in the early 1950s. His portfolio arcs over genres: rock, opera, jazz, folk, bluegrass, classical, cabaret, gospel, and even the occasional accordion-infused Nordic novelty song. Most significantly, Barton is recognized with shaping the “Northwest Sound." As a result of his many decades of work, Barton amassed thousands of analog reel-to-reel recordings and 45 RPM vinyl records at his home studio. In April 2010, the Libraries Media Center received a grant from the American Music Partnership of Seattle (AMPS) to preserve and describe a portion of these recordings. A large portion of his collection is now searchable here. If you have questions about the Barton Collection, please contact us.
