StageOne, part of the Fairfield Theatre Company on 70 Sanford Street in Fairfield is presenting “The Barr Brothers” on December 2nd at 7:30 pm. “The Barr Brothers aren’t just brothers,” says Sticky Magazine this month, “They’re more like a close-knit family with a vision of what modern folk should sound like.” Not unlike the Fleet Foxes or Dawes, the Barr Brothers (built around Brad and Andrew) are at the forefront of a sort of revival of ’70s folk rock aesthetics, through their sound, lifestyle and recording approach.
Best known as founding members of the spirited and unpredictable rock trio The Slip, brothers Andrew and Brad Barr had spent most of the ’90s on tour with that band. With The Barr Brothers, they are keeping on their experimental, explosive and curious musical career while exploring sounds quieter and more ethereal than anything in their previous work.
Sara’s classical harp was recorded through a fuzz pedal and they used a fretless peanut-bowl banjo and a bamboo angklung to create a masterfully modern and organically smooth Americana folk album. This kind of non-traditional music is not made every decade, never mind every year or every day.
Prepare yourself for a folk rock show that comes complete with a full-size classical harp! “Their tremendous talents shine through in this album and capture an Americana folk that keeps up with today’s demands for a fresh sound.” – Paste
