The Barr Brothers on Wednesday 18th July 2018
Based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, The Barr Brothers band consists of two brothers: drummer Andrew Barr and songwriter and guitar player Brad Barr, both from Providence, Rhode Island. The third core member is harpist Sarah Pagé.
Other instrumentation and musicians are added on tour, as needed. The band's recordings have twice been nominated for Juno Awards (in 2013 and 2015 for Adult Alternative Album of the Year.).
Their self-titled debut album The Barr Brothers was released in 2011 and focused on acoustic and electrified songs rooted in Appalachian folk. Second album Sleeping Operator (2014) further explored the connections between the Delta blues and its West and North African ancestry. Leftover songs from the Sleeping Operator sessions were released as a five-track collection Alta Falls (2015).
Their third album Queens of the Breakers was released in autumn 2017. Sarah Pagé will leave the band in 2018. The band tours frequently in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe with some shows played in Japan. Notable venues have included Levon Helm's studio in Woodstock NY; Red Rocks Amphitheater; two appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman.
