Shawn is one of North America's foremost Elvis impersonators. In fact, Earl McRae, Ottawa Sun Columnist "McRae's World" says in his Column on Friday, 22 Oct 99:
Mr. McRae goes on to say: "Indeed. Last winter, Moe
(owner of Moe's World Famous|
Newport Restaurant, home of the Ottawa Chapter of the Elvis Sighting Society.) and I went
to see Shawn Barry, Elvis Clone, in concert, and take it from me: If you never got to
see the real King, this'll do it for you." .... "Barry is blessed with a voice that sounds
naturally and stunningly like Elvis'; he has Elvis' height and build, the right face, the full
head of Elvis-styled hair, he conveys his charisma. His every vocal inflection, every
physical move, every subtle bodily positioning right down to Elvis' pinky fingers is
dead-on accurate; every little nuance is there."
