The Barr Brothers
The Barr Brothers
The Barr Brothers are a group out of Montreal fronted by the poly-rhythmic, jocular drumming of Andrew Barr, the songs and guitar playing of brother Brad Barr, and the innovative harp wizardry of Sarah Pagé—who has single-handedly redefined the instrument and its context. Bass, pedal steel, keyboards, and horns come in and out of the mix freely. Equally at home in solemn Arcadian ballads, swampy North African improvs, or classic rock and roll revelry, The Barr Brothers continue to embrace and enchant audiences with their methodical yet-whimsical approach to music making.
Nathan Moore
“Many have come and many have tried, but we may finally have a storytelling successor to Dylan, Van Zandt and Cash.” – Maverick Magazine

A bearer of the coveted Telluride Troubadour Award (2009), Nathan Moore is a pioneer of modern day troubadouring and a wellspring of songs like you wouldn’t believe. His love of poetry, songs and mischief has shaped his colorful, prolific career. He’s a founding member of both ThaMuseMeant and Surprise Me Mr. Davis, two bands that have toured the country extensively. There are a lot of folks out there that will tell you that one of these two bands is one of their favorite bands of all time. Between his solo career and his bands, Nathan has released 21 albums. From storytelling songwriter to rock band frontman (with a dash of magic here and there), Nathan has done it all with a disarming honesty and lyrical revelry that few could pull off. Lately he has taken to hosting a live online radio show from his home in Virginia.tenor percy stairs

“…a musician that is in a constant state of becoming, always in the present with wide-eyed curiosity,” State of Mind Magazine

“Nathan Moore…is one of the greatest songwriters we have and the faucet is always on pouring fresh songs out like water.” Aaron Case- Jambase

In 2012 Moore found “The End” of his epic Hippy Fiasco Rides Again adventure. For those that don’t know, he and his crew (road manager Chad Galactic and merch girl Liz Bunny) spontaneously headed out on tour without any gigs booked, but webcasting themselves 24 hours a day. They played only where they were invited by those watching the webcast who stepped up to host “Fiascoes” all over America. Nathan would perform in their homes, parks or other meeting places. Nathan encouraged everyone to bring instruments to the Fiascoes and play along, forming what became known as the Moorechestra. “Hippy Fiasco Rides Again: The Record”, was made with 100% fan participation through mobile recording and a special website. Over 100 people play on this record. There has been a movie made about the experience called, you guessed it, “Hippy Fiasco Rides Again: The Movie”. Just to recap, get this: the viewers of the webcast were watching a show about a traveling modern day troubadour and they decided where the tour went (heck they decided whether to get Salt and Vinegar or BBQ chips!). Not only that, they helped promote the tour, helped write the songs and in the end were invited to play on the record. All that happened! And it was way crazier than I’m making it sound.

“The sharp, introspective lyrics of Nathan Moore draw an instant connection to the great folk singers of the past.” -Paste Magazine

The versatility of Moore’s catalogue and performing experiences is hard to fathom and he’s shared the stage with an impressive list of talented artists (My Morning Jacket, Rickie Lee Jones, Greg Brown, Chuck Berry, Rambling Jack Elliot, Cheryl Crowe…) at venues and festivals all over the country. After touring relentlessly in the 90s and co-founding a small independent record label in Santa Fe, NM in 2001, Nathan returned to his roots in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 2006 to launch a solo endeavor. Moore’s 2007 solo album, “In His Own Worlds“, spent 21 weeks on the Roots Music Radio Charts, and his evocative one-man show that is an innovative combination of music, banter and magic has wowed audiences and garnered critical praise from coast-to-coast ever since. His two records “Folksinger” and “Dear Puppeteer” are on The Royal Potato Family Label, and comprise some his best work. One music writer calls Moore’s performance on Folk Singer “…as proficient as Ryan Adams, as lyrical as Jeff Tweedy and as charming as a deadbeat cartoon character that wakes up, rubs his belly and leans into the day” (Relix Magazine)

“Nathan Moore should be a star. He’s one of the greatest songwriters we have and the faucet is always on, pouring fresh songs out like water.” -Jambase
