Brad solo 12/14/19...Somewhere

Postby Joe Higley » Sun Dec 15, 2019 10:22 pm

Hi all. Not sure if any of you caught this last night...

I'm not an Instagram user but a friend of mine who is a big fan of the Barr Brothers received a notification last night that they'd be playing and would do a live feed over the app. He captured a screen recording for me and suffered through a long upload to Google Drive to share it with me. He gets the blue ribbon for that one. The show ended up being Brad solo. I don't know where he was but he definitely was in front of a live audience. Despite questionable cell phone placement on stage ( :D ) it was a decent enough phone recording. Brad played for about 60 minutes. Here's what I've identified from his set:

1. Beggar in the Morning (Brad on guitar and harmonica, with pump organ a bit too overbearing in the background. Not sure how he achieved this...Did someone sit in for this one? Or was he somehow playing guitar and pump organ simultaneously? IDK.)
2. Look Before It Changes
3. Sarah Through The Wall
4. new song (Brad played this on acoustic 12-string. "I was up 'til about 4 in the morning last night writing this....")
5. instrumental; not familiar with this one
6. Ready For War (Brad played this on the pump organ)
7. Song That I Heard (With long audience participation intro; audience held and passed around the filament that Brad attaches to his guitar strings.)
8. Before You Was Born (With "Heart and Soul" tease! "Big," anyone? Audience participation with snapping and clapping. Brad actually introduced this as "Before You Was Born," which of course is the title of Nathan's great song, but over all those years of The Slip, Brad, etc., covering it I grew used to them referring to it/introducing it with "were" substituted for "was." Just a minor curiosity I noticed.

This was billed as a totally acoustic event, i.e. no amplification at all, in Montreal.

Would love to see this too, even if super rough recording quality.

Here are the first 15 minutes. (I received the set in two segments - first 15 and last 45.) It cuts while "Sarah..." is in progress. Let me know if the link doesn't work. The last 45 minutes are in another file. I'll have to get that one uploaded tonight when I get home. That file is a touch over 5 gigs. I'm out of Dropbox space. Can anyone recommend an alternative?

wowee... probably my favorite rendition of Sarah Through the Wall... on nylon and confident as hell! wow! I think those were some Newst Flurries teases at the start.

Ready for War intro is "Abide with Me"... which is cool because i JUST HAPPENED to listen to "With Love (2004)" album last night that ends with Brad doing this on electric fuzz guitar.
