The Barr Brothers have delivered the first video from their new record Queens of the Breakers. “It Came To Me” pairs the band’s blues-inspired arrangements with footage from a uniquely Canadian lawnmower race.
The footage was captured at a hundred-year-old agricultural fair in Shigawake, Quebec, about 12 hours outside of Montreal. The Barr Brothers have performed at the festival and had a videographer capture the sights on a Super 8 this year.

Meghan Clinton, the wife of drummer Andrew Barr, who is from Shigawake, has organized the music festival component of the event for the past nine years.
“For us and everyone up there, [the music festival] has become the party of the summer,” Andrew Barr said in a release. “This year when I heard that the video’s director Vincent was coming to the fair to do some filming, I called him and requested he bring a couple good cameras and a rain poncho… Vincent dug in deep, making friends with the fairgoers, capturing some of the absurd moments and the seamless clashing of worlds that seems like it could only happen in Shigawake.”
