RTE’s Harry Guiren noted in a review of Clive Barnes performing at Vicar Street, Dublin, “Clive is a guitarist who can make one acoustic sound like six. Barnes transported the entire, hushed venue across the Atlantic to where the paths taken by the Delta Blues, Tom Waits and Bruce Springsteen all led to his own special territory.”
