Mary Elizabeth Barrett

Mary Elizabeth Barrett's (DSPS) son, Barrett Tuttobene, is the lead guitarist and songwriter in a two person group, 100 Onces.  Last fall they booked their first European tour and played Belfast and Dublin, Ireland and Brighton, Liverpool, and London, England.  Then they played Lemans, France.  They recently booked a return to a major music festival in Brighton, England in August and are planning to play the entire month of August in Ireland and the UK and spend the month of September in Europe.  Right now he is playing a large festival in Austin, Texas called South by Southwest. He is living his dream...a working musician, getting paid to play his own music, and seeing the world.  At 21, it just doesn't get any better than that!
