Matthew’s a few years older than his sister Jill, and got his start in the music biz a few years earlier, but they’ve both become well-known on the Canadian music scene.
Matthew’s a singer-songwriter who fits in the indie folk/pop category, while Jill has similar roots, but has done the bulk of her performing lately as a jazz vocalist.
On Thursday April 21 the Barbers are in town to play a show at Casino Regina that’s being presented by the Regina Jazz Society. They’ve apparently just released an album of cover songs called The Family Album so I expect they’ll be performing some of those songs, plus also some of their own material.
The concert is a fundraiser for the Regina Jazz Society, and also includes a silent auction. Tickets are $25/$30, and you can get more info on the Casino Regina website.
