SummerStage: The Felice Brothers / The Barr Brothers
Jun 4, 2015 @ 7:00 pm| Free
The Felice Brothers began in 2006 by doing what any youths, lost in upstate New York with dim job prospects would do: become obsessed with traveling the world and playing extremely loud rock ‘n’ roll. Their latest album, Favorite Waitress (2014), marks the first time the band recorded in a proper studio, though they’ve previously released five albums and six mixtapes. Produced by the band’s longtime producer and collaborator Jeremy Backofen, Favorite Waitress is their most fully realized statement to date.
The Barr Brothers are a Montreal based folk-roots quartet featuring brothers Brad and Andrew Barr with harpist Sarah Pagé and multi-instrumentalist Andrés Vial. The group’s first self-titled LP was released in 2011 and their second album, Sleeping Operator, debuted in October 2014. They’ve opened for folk singer Emmylou Harris and were nominated for a 2013 Juno award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year.
