We have an admitted fondness for the Montreal based band The Barr Brothers. That's because we used to know Andrew and Brad Barr when they were in a Boston based band called The Slip. It was a very different sounding group then with prog rock leanings. Since relocating to Montreal in 2005 and connecting with concert harpist Sarah Page what has become the Barr Brothers band started to take shape. It is a rootsy raw experience. The Barr Brothers have released two albums: their debut in 2011 and the new one called Sleeping Operator. They’ll stretch out in a live set.
