- Local Yokels - Nathan and Rebecca Bliss of Barnaby Bright

KRUU's own Keith DeBoer sat down with Nathan and Rebecca Bliss, the melodic brains and beauty that comprise the soul of Barnaby Bright.  The duo, named after the summer soltice, drove for hours in the early morning (after a late night show) so they could arrive at KRUU's studio in advance of their evening double bill with The Sea, The Sea (opening song before this interview). What ensued was manic conversation, punch drunk laughter and an amazing 2 song, in-studio performance.

Nathan and Rebecca are two modern day troubadours, averaging  40,000 miles a year to places like London, Amsterdam, and New York's Lincoln Center. They've appeared on stage with bands like the Lumineers and Norah Jones. Their multiple guitars, harmonium, banjo, ukulele, floorboard bass, thumb pianos and keyboards yield creative instrumentation, stellar harmonies and a stage show that places them at the top of our short list of Indie-folk duos you do not want to miss.
