This has definitely been a coming out year for The Civil Wars. Their debut album Barton Hallow is near the top of several year end “Best Of” lists and they’ve played some prestigious gigs including The Tonight Show, Austin City Limits, and the Grand Ole Opry.
Last Christmas the duo, featuring the radiant Joy Williams and John Paul White (Captain Jack Sparrow’s doppelganger), released a two song EP titled Tracks in the Snow. For me this stunning version of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” was the highlight of that release.
