Countdown to Bonnaroo: 23 Days – Artist of the Day: The Civil Wars

14 May

Wow, what a (well deserved) rise to fame for The Civil Wars.  Not only did they figure out how to cross over to multiple genres of music but the got to perform on the biggest stage of them all earlier this year at the GRAMMY Awards (I still think they got hosed on the miniscule performance time) and have two GRAMMYs to show for it, Best Folk Album and Best Duo/Group Performance.  And man is Barton Hollow a great album that everyone should have in their collection.  Even more exciting is the duo of Joy Williams and John Paul White now bring their beautiful melodies to Tennessee for what is sure to be a great performance.  With Williams pregnant, it should be interesting to see if this affects their set, I suppose not but you never know. Bonnaroo baby, maybe?
