My Grass Is Blue
✝️ JUNIOR BARBER | MARCH 8, 2017 ✝️ Remembering popular reso-guitarist Junior Barber, best known for his seven-year stint as the dobro don with Eric and Leigh, The Gibson Brothers, who died on this day, March 8, in 2017.💬 “He’s a legend up here [upstate New York], one of the first pro musicians me and Leigh ever got to work with. Junior was a super tasteful player, a real tone freak. He helped mold us into becoming better musicians, teaching us the importance of restraint, taste, and tone. Junior was a huge influence on us, and I am very thankful for that.” - Eric Gibsonℹ️ Junior Barber, born Antoine D. Barber Jr. in Chazy Lake, New York, was 17 when he discovered the captivating sound of the dobro. A music lover all his life, his younger years were spent dabbling with amplified instruments in a string of musical ensembles -- everything from country to garage rock – throughout the New England region. He eventually sold all his electric instruments and devoted the rest of his musical journey to the dobro and acoustic music, specifically his first love, bluegrass. He was both an avid educator and a student of the dobro and his work with The Gibson Brothers, starting in the early 1990s, was something of a family affair; his son, Mike, has played bass for the brothers since 1991. Nominated by the IBMA for Dobro Player of the Year five years running, Junior Barber was unable to play music after suffering a stroke in 2016 and died on this day in 2017 at the age of 73.
