Barry Louis Polisar is a musician and storyteller who has been making kids and adults laugh while they think for over 40 years. In 2007, Jason Reitman, director of the movie Juno, called Barry and asked to license his song “All I Want is You.” For Reitman, the song perfectly represented Juno’s transition. “That’s the most beautiful thing about Barry’s music,” he said. “It seems to co-habitate both worlds, being an adult and being a child.” I chatted with Barry just after he finished performing an incredible set at the Saturday Morning Tunes Family Festival in June.
