Barry spends his time writing songs and playing music whenever the opportunity arises. Barry was also a founding member of the Celtic Folk band, Erin's Call. With Erin's Call Barry was lead vocalist and songwriter. The band released a self titled album in 2002 which still receives radio play today. Barry has released a Christmas Album of totally original music, called Barry Delaney : Let the Bells Ring. This is the first album for Barry since releasing an album with Erin's Call, Barry's song Widow's Walk has enjoyed much radio play over the years and was featured on Homebrew 4 released under the label, Avondale Music. Christmas in the River, which Delaney wrote about growing up in Riverhead, Hr. Grace NL. was voted # 17 in a VOCM Radio poll last year for the top 50 Newfoundland and Labrador Christmas songs. Delaney has included the song as a bonus track for fans of the song. This album is something that Barry has wanted to do for quite some time and finally found the opportunity to share these songs for this past Christmas Season. The album is very reflective and aims to invoke memories of Christmas' past and present. It is a combination of ballads and boisterous melodies. The album begs you to sit back; and be enveloped in the sounds and scents of the season. The combination of mandolin and tin whistle compliment the lyric in a way that plays on the senses and puts you in the true Christmas Spirit!
