Singer, songwriter, and supporter of The Chewstick Foundation, Joy T Barnum will help to raise funds toward the completion of The Chewstick Culture Hub at 81 Front Street with a show on Sunday, November 22.

The event, titled ‘Joy T Barnum: Under the Covers,’ will see the singer perform a mix of her favorite covers alongside songs chosen by the audience through bids.

A spokesperson said, “Joy T is no stranger to the entertainment scene, having recorded four studio albums and one live album over the course her career. She also took part in Heather Nova’s 13 City Tour in 2010 and has been the star act in several musical collaborations in Bermuda.


“She has mentored and inspired a multitude of young Bermudian singers to hone their craft and take their voices to the world, as well.

“Despite her many successes she remains a free spirit and philanthropist at heart, who has answered the call to help the Chewstick Foundation to strengthen their service to the creative industry in Bermuda.

“Joy is inviting attendees to the event to make bids toward songs for her to sing, with proceeds from bidding going to support the renovations at the Chewstick Culture Hub at 81 Front Street.”

“While Joy enjoys and performs a range of music from a multitude of genres, including opera, country, soul, jazz and rock there are still songs she may not know or would never consider singing without the influence of attendees at this Sundays’ Under the Covers fundraiser.

“She is open to the challenge of presenting each song justice, whether she’s heard it before or not, and is committed to offering a fun memorable evening.
