The Barr Brothers and Les Filles Illighadad

Théâtre Maisonneuve June 26, 2021

Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, The Barr Brothers and Les Filles Illighadad show scheduled on June 26, 2020 has been postponed until June 26, 2021. Please keep your ticket(s), as it will be honoured when you enter the performance hall.

For the first time, the Montreal outfit’s three members—namesake siblings Brad and Andrew Barr, harpist Sarah Pagé—went empty-handed into the studio. Improvisations that lasted hours at a time, with grooves inspired by India, West Africa and 80s. Then the band took that racket and distilled it into 11 songs. At times the sound’s all twinkling, the score for a lost John Hughes film; at other times it’s whetted, searching, like the stuff of Lhasa de Sela or Led Zeppelin’s III. It’s this tension, this dither, that lives at the centre of Queens of the Breakers. The sound of a band still playing, even occasionally reimagining, their rock’n’roll.
