the civil wars

Fresh from their double award-winning triumph at the 2012 Grammys, the Civil Wars start a UK tour tonight in Birmingham.

It’s one of only two dates on their trip round the UK that isn’t ‘sold out.’

Which is an indication of the interest in the duo of Joy Williams and John Paul White.

Country? Folk? Alt Country?

Their Grammys were for ‘Best Folk Album’ and ‘Best Country Duo/Group Performance,’ which probably tells you more about the all-encompassing scope of those awards.

Like all the music I highlight on this blog, particularly that’s new to me, it’s largely left to the artists and performers to let their work do the talking.

So just to say, I like the Civil Wars – a lot.

The Civil Wars – Barton Hollow
