  • Brad Barr Announces Instrumental Solo Guitar Album “THE WINTER MISSION”, Shares New Song “ANCIENT CALENDARS”

  • American guitarist and singer-songwriter Brad Barr, who is best known as the lead singer of The Barr Brothers, announced his instrumental solo guitar album “THE WINTER MISSION” would be released on January 21, 2022 via Secret City Records.
    The album comprises 12-track, composed and produced by Philip Bradford Barr.
    From the album, he released the first single “ANCIENT CALENDARS”.
    Brad Barr said of the song, “ANCIENT CALENDARS is a solo guitar piece, a long-form improvisation where I explore a basic motif and progressively extend it outwards in two directions. I played it on an amplified 12-string acoustic guitar. There are no overdubs. That was the idea while writing and recording this music—one person playing music alone without any accompaniment. As with all the songs on this record, the title ANCIENT CALENDARS is a reference to the number 216 — specifically, how in the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar, a single cycle, or 'age', consisted of 2,160 years. It's also believed that the entire calendar of five great cycles is equal to 2,160 orbits of Jupiter. If they could think that far ahead, you'd think I'd be able to remember my wedding anniversary.”
  • He shared on social media, “Friends, it's so satisfying to finally announce to you that I'll be dropping a new solo album on January 21, 2022. It's called THE WINTER MISSION, and it contains 12 brand new, unaccompanied, solo instrumental guitar pieces. I began writing and recording these songs at the end of 2019, having been asked by the good people at the All For One theatre company in New York to compose new music for their exclusively one-person shows. It really carried me through what we can all agree was one of the strangest and most isolating of times. I'm very grateful to Secret City Records for helping me put this music out, and to my wife Brigitte for doing all the artwork, photography, and videos.”
