In Nashville, a Barbershop Battle

The Barbershop Harmony Society is holding its annual international convention and competition this week in Nashville, Tenn. All is not harmonious, however. The "kibbers" — as in "Keep it Barbershop" — and the "libbers" — as in Liberal Interpretation of Barbershop" are finding it hard to get along.
