Editorial Reviews

A collaboration between North Carolina Americana songsmith/guitarist Byrd and Northwest singer/fiddler/guitarist Chris Kokesh, known for her work with Misty River. The Barn Birds is an album about romantic love expressed with great songs and great sound. Byrd and Kokesh include songs written with and by Amy Speace, Anthony da Costa, Carey West, Corin Raymond, Anaïs Mitchell, Rob Vaarmeyer, Luke Dick, and the late Jack Hardy. The Barn Birds was recorded live-off-the-floor at Wimberley Texas's Temple of Sound, Blue Rock Studio and Artist Ranch. Mixed by John Keane (REM, Indigo Girls, Drive By Truckers) and mastered by Brent Lambert at Kitchen Mastering (Megafaun, Avett Brothers, Ani Difranco). A gorgeous, grainless, hauntingly natural disc for audiophiles and lovers.

Format: Audio CD
The Barn Birds are singer-songwriter-guitarist Jonathan Byrd, and singer-songwriter-fiddler Chris Kokesh. Each was well established individually on the folk festival circuit when they met and began working together several years ago. Their debut as a duo was written primarily by Byrd with collaborators (Anais Mitchell, Chris Kokesh, Anthony da Costa, Amy Speace, Luke Dick and Carey West), but they're paired equally as duet singers, and Kokesh's fiddle often adds a third melodic voice. Recorded live in a single day with sparse backing, the music is surprisingly rich. The instruments spend most of their time supporting the duo's vocals; the voices meld together into the magical new voice of a well-realized duet. Kokesh adds a few well-placed solos, such as the drowsy sixteen bars of "It's Too late to Call it a Night," but the focus remains primarily on the singing, whether in harmony, unison, or in the cappella breakdown of "Desert Rose." The music is folk and country, with an old-timey sound for the sweet "Sundays Loving You" and gypsy-jazz fiddle and rhythm guitar on "One Night at a Time." This is a wonderfully unassuming album, laid down by two closely connected musical souls who've let us eavesdrop on their conversation. [©2013 Hyperbolium]

I have seen them at Ann Z's house concert. I loved the songs. Same songs on the CD. I play it frequently.

I saw them live at the Timberline Lodge Music Festival this week. They were awesome and I just had to have the CD.

This is a listenable album but I was disappointed in the overall quality. Chris Kokesh is an extremely talented musician, songwriter, and vocalist but she took a backseat to her musical partner and the combined effort was not made more dynamic by her generosity. Although I haven't seen them perform, I'm not sure that this is a duo that should continue.
