Barr Brothers

My interview with Andrew Barr of the Barr Brothers

The Montreal-based Barr Brothers have been touring their atmospheric mixture of acoustic and electric music for a few years now. With their latest appearance on Letterman, which saw the host offer to move to Montreal and be their manager, the sound is reaching an ever-widening audience of lovers of old instruments, musical chops, and moody, abstract lyrics. The four members, Brad Barr, Andrew Barr, Sarah Page, and Andres Vial together create something their Facebook page calls “sci-folk/mysterious roots.” Northern Transmissions wanted to know a bit more about the mystery that’s got David Letterman ready to leave New York. Alice Severin was able to talk to Andrew Barr about the music, the journey, and where to find misused antiques.
