Brad Barr shares ‘ANCIENT CALENDARS’ & announces new album The Winter Mission

Brad Barr – the lead singer and songwriter of The Barr Brothers – announces The Winter Mission: a brand-new instrumental solo guitar album out January 21 2022 via Secret City Records / Remote Control Records. The guitarist has also shared the first single from the album titled ‘ANCIENT CALENDARS‘.
Of the single, Barr shares: “’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.”
