Barr Brothers - Darkness Has Arms

The Barr Brothers presents “Even the Darkness Has Arms” from their 2014 album “Sleeping Operator”.

“I was holding my breath/When the tightrope walker slipped into the moon glow/Saying all my children, follow me/Maybe it’s time to go…/You can be cruel when you’re wise/You can be wise when you’re blue/And baby, if I have/Then I have for you…” Hailing from Rhode Island in the United States, the Barr brothers settled in Montreal in 2004. Soon after, harpist Sarah Pagé joined the band. With the addition of multi-instrumentalist Andres Vial, the band was complete. Brilliantly mixing guitar, harp and percussions, The Barr Brothers is acclaimed by audiences and critics alike. BRBR presents The Barr Brothers and their song “Even the Darkness Has Arms”!
