The Barr Brothers came by the CPR Performance Studio last week shortly before a performance opening for The War on Drugs at Denver's Ogden Theatre. Read OpenAir's review of that show here.

The Montreal folk group, founded by titular siblings Brad and Andrew and featuring harpist Sarah Page, performed a number of tracks off the excellent new album "Sleeping Operator."

They also spoke with Keefer Fulgham about how music ended Brad and Andrew's sibling rivalry, the influence of African music on the new album, and how "Sleeping Operator" relates to Bach chamber music.
