This Sunday, two performers I love – Matthew Barber and Jill Barber – are playing at a place I love By Chadsey’s Cairn Winery, located in beautiful Prince Edward County. This afternoon show (2pm start), which they are calling “Barbers in the Barn”, is going to be a perfect way to send off the summer.
I am getting even more excited about seeing these two amazing singer-songwriters perform, as today Matthew Barber announced that he has begun work on a new album, which should be out in the New Year. So, if we are lucky, we might get to hear some brand new songs, as well stuff from the great Ghost Notes, Sweet Nothing, etc., which I have talked about on these pages before.

Jill Barber will be playing in Fredericton on Sept. 19th and then will be off to Australia in October. See her site for details.
To get you in the mood, I offer you a few tracks from the Sibling Revelry tour, the last time I saw Matthew & Jill Barber share a stage. Come on out to the County this weekend, drink some amazing Gamay Noir, and take in two of the best musicians around.
