GB Roots, aka Kirby Green and Dave Barber, were both brought together by their unusual love of

bluegrass and Americana -- well, unusual for Western Canadians at least. “There aren’t many

opportunities to play bluegrass in Canada, but it was my first love,” says Barber. The two met in

Edmonton at Grant MacEwan University, where Green studied bass and Barber studied guitar. While in

college, both began freelancing with Canadian artists and establishing themselves in the Alberta music

scene, but ultimately wanted to start a musical project that would allow them to write and perform their

own original music.
