Brad and Andrew Barr have been playing music together since they were kids, but it wasn’t until Brad’s chance meeting with Sarah Page that The Barr Brothers began to materialize.
Sometimes this is how it gets done. From their official bio:
They taught themselves how to play, at first on cardboard boxes and home-strung imitation guitars, then on actual, zebra-striped electric guitars and drums. "Wipe Out" and "Johnny B. Goode" were among the first songs absorbed into the repertoire. With the same energy they used to attack each other with boxing gloves, they attacked the popular hits of the day and old blues songs they found in their father's record collection. A healthy diet of classic and esoteric rock paved the way to the discoveries that lay ahead.
