The Brother Brothers

Thursday - June, 28 @ 7:00pm

Identical twins Adam and David Moss are a musical duo unlike most others.

The Brother Brothers sound is striking and undeniably captivating. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, klezmer, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements accompanied by cello, guitar, and 5-string fiddle. With individual storied careers in the americana scene under their belts, the brothers are finally teaming up to bring their experiences together. Their debut EP, Tugboats (2017)has garnered noteworthy praise, with Saving Country Music dubbing the duo, "the closest thing you can find to Simon & Garfunkel in this century.”

Over the last year, The Brother Brothers have generated steady momentum on the road, serving as carried support for both Sarah Jarosz and Lake Street Dive on multiple tours and directly supporting Shakey Graves, Big Thief, and The Felice Brothers. They have taped sessions for Daytrotter, Audiotree, and Music City Roots, as well as performed at The Kennedy Center, Folk Alliance, and the Americana Music Conference.

RED LINE ROOTS Review: “Tug at Your Heartstrings" http://www.redlineroots.com/2017/03/tug-heartstrings-brother-brothers-tugboats-ep/

 

“The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Their ability to pull the listener into their quietly energetic musical journey is a joy to behold. I can’t wait to be out on the road with Adam & David and hear their heart wrenching songs and spot on harmonies night after night!”  -Sarah Jarosz

 

"They're the real deal. They know old-time two part harmony from the inside, and that fraternal resonance is there to be clearly heard." -Mark Simos (Allison Krauss, Del McCoury)

"Keep an eye out for the Brother Brothers, because they're most certainly what's coming up next". - POP MATTERS
