The Civil Wars Live

Are you in the mood for a concert?

"In some ways, music doesn't get much more modest or minimalist than it is in the hands of The Civil Wars, a duo comprised of California-to-Nashville transplant Joy Williams and her Alabaman partner, John Paul White. They travel without a backup band, and on their first full-length album, Barton Hollow, the bare-bones live arrangements that fans hear on the road are fleshed out with just the barest of acoustic accoutrements. Each song is an intimate conversation, and no third wheels or dinner-party chatter are going to interrupt that gorgeous, haunting hush."


  1. I was watching.listening to some Levon Helm a while back. A lot of his work was stripped down... modest... minimalist, to borrow your phrasing.

    I liked these clips... :o)


  2. I love this. Guitar music always moves me. Beautiful, my Annie. Love you. xoxo

  3. I like the fact the audience is not talking!! I have been to some acoustic shows and there are people wanting to talk during the show. I just want to tell them"Stop and listen people!"

    I love the second song!
