The Breedloves

The Breedloves

Love is contagious and forever spreads in the presence of Jay Kirkland and Barbara Gorin, The Breedloves acoustic duo. They have been performing together for over 8 years. Enjoy the sounds of music you know and love but never heard like this before.  Their romantic, original acoustic music and innovative covers shine with their musical chemistry and passion for all things guitar. Their original instrumentals have a way of taking you away to a beautiful place, whether it’s to a beach, with their song, “The Cruz,” or to the beautiful town of “Sausalito,” in Northern California, while listing to this dynamic duo! Together, they are known to captivate audiences of all ages.  Jay performs with the Studio Atlas six string, and Barbara performs with the Atlas Series Studio C250/SME-12. Jay is fairly new to the ukulele, having only played it less than two years. Here is a little example of Jay performing with Barbara and friends, a remix of “All Along the Watch Tower” on ukulele. He plays the ukulele with passion and drive and it would make Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix proud!

Both Jay and Barbara are involved with a wonderful National nonprofit children's music charity, Guitars Not Guns, particularly the Contra Costa County, California Chapter.  Barbara is the President of the Contra Costa County Chapter, and sits on the National Executive Board and Jay is the VP of Special Projects for the local Chapter of Guitars Not Guns. This program provides free guitars and free guitar lessons to at risk youth and foster kids in an 8 week program. Check out an interview on San Francisco’s Bay Area People, with Barbara and Jay discussing Guitars not Guns, and performing their first single, “Sausalito” live on the air: 

Both Barbara and Jay are honored and excited to have been chosen the second year in a row to perform at NAMM as part of Bands at NAMM 2019.
