Barr’s songwriting approach is born out of necessity

The Barr Brothers, with Shannon Lay, at the Sinclair, 52 Church St., Cambridge, Wednesday: Tickets: $20; sinclaircambridge.com.

    Barr's songwriting approach is born out of necessity
    Musicians often radically shift their songwriting approach while chasing inspiration. But Barr Brothers chief songwriter Brad Barr's changing approach wasn't the result of anything as romantic as a dogged pursuit of his muse."It was fatherhood," Barr said frankly. "I wasn't able to sit up until 3 a.m. working on songs anymore.

    Farmers' Markets are Beloved, but the Government May Cut Their Funding | Civil Eats
    America's current farm bill expires at the end of September 2018, leaving less than a year before lawmakers could begin to make cuts to a variety of federal programs affecting food and farming. And, despite America's growing love for farmers' markets, it's looking unlikely that the Farmer Markets Promotion Program (FMPP) will be prioritized in the coming bill.

    The photographer LaToya Ruby Frazier can capture the decline of an entire economy, the vulnerable cycles of American industry, within a single human face. Like the documentarians Dorothea Lange and Gordon Parks before her, she scales down social upheaval to the intimate, modest scale of portraiture.
