The Civil Wars

I have been listening to John Paul White and Joy Williams since they posted their first song on Youtube (check out my favorites), but I was still unprepared for how wonderful they were in person. Hearing them and meeting them at the Pourhouse in Raleigh was a very special treat. If you haven’t discovered them yet, you can still get their Live at Eddie’s set for free, you can buy their album Barton Hollow just about everywhere now (going to be the Grammy winner – I called it back in February), and you can probably catch them live since they are touring relentlessly. They also did a wonderful job on NPR’s Tiny Desk recently. Give them a listen. Good people making great music.
