After a 40-year hiatus from performing, Uncle Barnaby, aka: David Stumph, has returned to music following a successful career in business.
A Vietnam veteran, Stumph’s music chronicles his service, life’s experiences, and social issues of the day. Together with fellow veteran Rich Raitano, he formed the band, Uncle Barnaby, in Chicago after returning from Vietnam. The band became part of the Chicago folk music scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s that spawned the likes of John Prine, Steve Goodman, and others. Stumph carries on the band’s legacy and the name. He and Raitano continue to collaborate as songwriters today.
Since his retirement in 2016, Stumph has produced two albums. The first was a solo EP, Uncle Barnaby: On My Way Home featuring two new songs written together with Raitano along with three songs by Stumph. The second released in April 2020, Better World, by the Uncle Barnaby Trio featuring Judy Parker on harmonica and Steve Ellis on a variety of stringed instruments. Better World is a collection of songs written over the years along with several new ones.
With music never far from mind during his hiatus, it was always prominent in the Stumph home. His son, Patrick, picked up were Stumph left off in the mid-1970’s to become the voice of the band, Fall Out Boy.

Uncle Barnaby is currently working on a third album due early in 2021. Watch for details at www.unclebarnaby.com.
