The Barr Brothers – Live in Philadelphia – 4.15.11

The Barr Brothers stopped by the Fire this past week in support of their self-titled album.  The set was quick, but clearly demonstrated why the combo of Brad and Andrew Barr is one of the greatest pairs of brother musicians going today.  The brothers weren’t alone, and just like the album they had Sarah Page accompanying them on Harp and Andres Vial covering bass, keys, and additional vocal duties.  Vial’s deep voice complimented Brad’s on many songs through-out the evening including a rare cover of the Slip’s “Suffocation Keep”.  Page’s delicate yet precise finger plucks of her harp added to the worldly vibe. The highlight was her linking up with Brad’s Ali Farka Toure influenced guitar riffs in a spirited jam during “Deacon’s Son.”  They concluded with “Beggar in the Morning,” so far one of my favorite songs of the year.
