Brad Barr announces his new solo guitar album “THE WINTER MISSION” out January 21

Brad Barr – the lead singer and songwriter of The Barr Brothers – is announcing The Winter Mission, a brand-new instrumental solo guitar album out January 21 . The guitarist also shared today the first single from the album titled “ANCIENT CALENDARS”.

“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.” – Brad Barr
