Listen to The Barr Brothers.

Built around the evocative vocals and songwriting of Brad Barr and the sturdy and studious drumming of his brother Andrew, the Montreal-based Americana/folk-rock trio was formed in 2006 after the dissolution of the siblings’ avant-rock trio, the Slip. They’ll perform songs from their recently released album, Queens of the Breakers.

The brothers spent the bulk of the 1990s touring with the Slip before calling it quits in 2004. Upon relocating to Montreal, the duo hooked up with classically trained harpist Sarah Page and began operating under the Barr Brothers moniker.

Their newly minted eponymous debut album was issued in 2011 and elicited positive reviews and an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman. The band’s sophomore long-player, Sleeping Operator, arrived in 2014.
