Barr Brothers tour w/ Low Anthem Mr. Davis & Slip Shows Announced

Surprise Me Mr. Davis & The Slip Announce Dates

The Barr Brothers at FME Festival
Guitarist Brad Barr and drummer Andrew Barr, best known as founding members of revered rock bands The Slip and Surprise Me Mr. Davis, are adding a third act to their repertoire. In the long tradition of brothers who've assumed their surname as a moniker, The Barr Brothers introduce themselves with a string of West Coast and Canadian shows opening for The Low Anthem.

The seeds for The Barr Brothers were first sown five years ago when Brad and Andrew relocated to Montreal. Brad's apartment shared an adjoining wall with harpist Sarah Page. The two would hear each other practicing through the cracks. Sarah's gentle melodies began weaving their way into the music that Brad was writing. A friendship was struck and songs were born. This latest endeavor for Brad and Andrew finds them exploring sounds quieter and more ethereal than anything in their previous work. Final touches are currently being added to a debut recording that will be released later this year.

Brad and Andrew Barr remain equally committed to their other bands, as well. Plans will be announced in the coming weeks for Surprise Me Mr. Davis tour dates and EP release, while work is also underway on the next full-length studio album by The Slip. Both The Slip and Davis have dates listed below, including some special Jazz Fest night engagements.
