Surprised she isnt finishing up the tour? It will be weird to still have "The Barr Brothers" but no Sarah

At this point, lets just call them the Slip and they can play all their songs!

Exactly what I thought, any chance Marc is around?

I thought the Barr Brothers were built on the harp sound, it seems like from their last album they've been going away from that. I'm not sure if that was part of the reason for Sarah moving on, or this has been something in the works for a while but definitely will be interesting to see what direction they go from here.

Seeing them in Cambridge in late November, I was struck by how much *more* prominet Sarah was than the last few times I'd seen them. Her harp - while often with a heavily processed sound - was more up in the mix, she sang more often and more powerfully, and there was the wild electric sarangi thing. This is a surprise, and the language from her FB post about this does make me wonder whose choice this was. Seems like a shame - I do like the pedal steel, but the more unusual instrumentation was part of the appeal.

yeah the "I wont be carrying my collaboration with The Barr Brothers...", i mean, i thought "The Barr Brothers" were Andrew, Brad and Sarah, this almost sounds like she felt like an outsider but who knows. She was a huge part of their sound, i guess less so on Queen of the breakers. A pretty significant loss.
