The Civil Wars

Vintage Cafe -The Civil Wars From 2011 Before Their Hiatus

February 17, 2014 - Last week The Civil Wars record company made available digitally a covers EP the duo had put out on vinyl last year. Among other songs it includes their version of Elliot Smith's "Between The Bars." Unfortunately John Paul White and Joy Williams are no closer to renewing their partnership which has been on hiatus since last year. In that context we thought it would be great to revisit that first rush of success with the Barton Hollow album and listen to our 2011 interview with The Civil Wars for our Vintage Cafe.
