A while back while Del was across the great pond in London, he got together with the great folks at City Sessions at the amazing Roundhouse to shoot this great live session. Check it out below, and let us know what you think.

Well, it’s official, summer is coming to an end, but the good times keep on rolling. Del will be bringing Headwaters to stops from Alberta to Quebec this fall, so keep your eye out on the tour dates, and for those of you who can’t get enough of Facebook, you can find on-going announcements there as well.
In other exciting news, against the symbolic milieu of a decommissioned grain elevator known as the ‘Five Prairie Giants’ in Inglis, Manitoba, Del will bring his twang-kissed tales to life for a full-length feature music documentary. Del will be teaming up with the producers at Farpoint Films, whose music documentary credits include The Weakerthans and The Sheepdogs. Stay tuned for more information!
Back in April, leading up to the release of Headwaters, Del was in the illustrious Banff Centre. Check out the very cool live recording that’s just been posted on the venue’s website.
Where did this guy come from? I’m sure there’s a story, or nine – nine songs of melody, everyday desperation and occasional arrivals of harmony. A Winnipegger, but home on the roam, the worn-in Barber will appeal to fans of Jim Cuddy or Justin Rutledge (though he’s less earnest than the latter and dustier than the former). He writes about Monday-morning mirrors, streetlights that serve for stars, and often about fire: “Choking on the smoke, trying to get warm.” There’s thought to the arrangements; this stuff isn’t rough cut. Barber’s put in the miles. We get his trip. B.W.

Just before leaving for tour, Del gathered his legion of trusty musicians, sound engineers, and videographers to film a live rendition of “The Waitress.” Shot in a barn loft in Manitoba, we’re mighty proud.
