Barring the chord?

So what is the disadvantage to keeping the entire chord barred instead of moving the barre up and down?

If you don't lift your finger the two bass notes ring out over each other instead of being distinct and separate.  Sounds better.

I'm trying to learn some Peter, Paul and Mary songs to play to my children. I've been able to get the basic Travis style picking down but when I listen to the songs, I feel like I'm missing something. I understand I don't have another guitarist. Does Peter Yarrow use this basic Travis style that is in this posted lesson? If not, how does it differ? Thanks in advance!!!
