The Barr Brothers Perform "Beggar In the Morning" at the Grand Canyon
Shortly before embarking on their Fall 2011 tour, The Barr Brothers said they would fulfill a lifelong goal by travelling to the Grand Canyon and perform amidst its vast surroundings. Months later, we can see that the band reached their goal with the release of a new video, titled “Beggar in the Canyon.” The video shows the band performing their tune “Beggar in the Morning” along the ridges of the famed natural wonder. The Barr Brothers tell the tale of how the video came about:
When we left Montreal to tour the States last fall, we had one goal above all else: film a song at the Grand Canyon. Two weeks later we arrived at the canyon and set up our instruments on one of the ridges. A small audience gathered around and perched themselves on various rocks and spots close to the edge. We passed out iPods that had been given to us by the Manhattan Apple store and declared open season. Our friend Samara Chadwick edited this together using the footage shot by our new friends from the canyons edge. Thanks to the crow for making an appearance(can you spot him?). Enjoy!
Watch the stunningly beautiful performance in the video below.
