Served aboard the USS Kawishiwi AO146. from three tours off the coast of Vietnam. 1968-1971 We were home ported in Subic Bay, Philippines. This is where I had my first experience jamming with live musicians.      


Bio
Tim bought his first harmonica in 1967 after hearing the Yard-birds doing the blues classic, He has played harp and guitar with numerous bands in California and Hawaii, as well as working in commercials, movies and comedy.

While drawing in the air conditioned Admiral's cabin, while my shipmates were in hot tropical sun chipping paint. That was the life!  The captain really liked my captain's chair with the toy wheel. I also drew the Special K on the front of the book, also the ships crest, that was hard!

Tim has supported dozens of legendary blues and rock acts, such as Charlie Musselwhite, Roy Buchanan, Norton Buffalo, Taj Mahal, Canned Heat, David Bromberg, Richie Havens, and blew harp with Bo Diddley.


Jon Bernard  remembers: I served with Tim Barron & he was one of the true characters of our ship. While he was a legitimate 60's musician (with all that it entails), he was an alert, mature and savvy watchstander who did his job well. I always enjoyed a pilothouse watch if he was on it. I remember when we were in port, he would occasionally take liberty from the ship to go to downtown Honolulu to play in the band at huge concerts with the biggest acts of the day. I admired him a lot & it was good to hear all is well with him. My only regret was I never saw him in concert, but everyone on board was familiar with his harmonica music. He could get a ton of sound from a simple Marine Band mouth harp!
