Many of you have heard of and have followed via this here blog, but one part of that musical creativity that we haven’t covered much is the new-ish solo-ish project by The Barr Brothers. They’re releasing an album soon Sarah Page, “a classically trained harpist from Montreal a propensity for the experimental” and their friend and multi-instrumentalist Andres Vial…and with that, they’ve announced a stretch of shows back at home and (somewhat) state-side to promote the new release. The eponymous debut is due out September 27th.

I’ve got @phortin on lock to the gig at but is playing at in the week before that. Then a quick stop in , then out to LA before returning up to our “hat” for a bunch of dates across Canada. Read on for the dates and check out their single, “Beggar in the Morning,” for a taste of their folky sound. It’s cool. For sure.
