“…singer-songwriter Nicholas Barron opened with a sharp set, mostly comprised of his percussive, guitar-driven originals. Of note, were the anthemic “Love Bus” and the sly “Dirt Rich.” This once-upon-a-time busker doubles as a quick-witted commentator and a sandpaper-voiced stylist with an enviable range. Leon Redbone and Louis Armstrong come to mind. He ended with his own haunting version of the late Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which drew a barrage of admiration.
