Tickets on sale this Friday, visit The Barr Brothers’ website.
“Nostalgia, as a loose rule, is generally an impulse we try to avoid, or at least rely on sparingly. But when the reality sets in that a decade’s worth of music has gone down on our watch, and to have seen it unfold with the help of our amazing family of musicians and the support of such a giving audience as yourselves, we feel it’s a good time to look back and acknowledge the path we’ve traveled. With that in mind, we’ve decided to perform our three LPs in their entirety, chronologically, on three consecutive evenings in two Canadian cities. It’s gonna be a marathon…we hope you can make it for some of it, if not all of it!” – The Barr Brothers
