the winter mission live in concert
at Triad Theater, NYC
A one night only live performance in support of AFO Musical Artist in Residence Brad Barr's brand-new instrumental solo guitar album The Winter Mission.
Brad Barr spent decades developing his visceral approach to the guitar, first with The Slip and then across three records with The Barr Brothers. "The Winter Mission"—the follow-up to "The Fall Apartment," Barr's 2008 solo debut—had its origins in a commission from Michael Wolk, Artistic Director at All For One Theater. It "felt like a gift" Barr recalls—to have a sound he could explore all by himself, away from the road, during COVID's strange intermission.
FRIDAY, MAY 13 | 7pm
Presented by All For One Theater
Running Time: Approx 70 minutes
