The Barr Brothers

Lord, I Just Can't Keep From Crying

The Barr Brothers are some mighty talented motherfuckers. Andrew (drums) and Brad Barr (guitar, vocals) seem to possess endless subterranean reservoirs of talent combined with a hard nosed dedication to constantly bettering their craftsmanship. The results, particularly live and in the moment, are often staggering, music that affects the whole of a person, if they let it. The boys congregate with like-minded, often equally talented players who tend to tap into their own best resources in the Barr Brothers’ company. To wit, this fab take on Blind Willie Johnson’s blues supplication. If you want to see what a musician really going after “it” look like – that deliciously unattainable, just barely out of reach thing that keeps one keeping on – peep Brad’s face around the 3:00 minute mark. Thanks to our bud Reed Mathis for turning us onto this clip.
