The Civil Wars at The Vogue: Two Voices And One Guitar.

November 13, 2011 - Nashville-based country-folk duo “The Civil Wars” (Joy Williams and John Paul White) owned the stage at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver last night. The fact that it was my birthday didn’t matter, Kathryn and I wanted to see this dynamic duo who are on the rising curve to stardom. Touring in support of their latest release "Barton Hollow", the Vogue Theatre provided an intimate setting for Joy & John Paul’s exceptionally haunting vocals, sweet harmonies and exceptional songwriting.
The opening act, “Milo Greene” was a real surprise too! Delightfully entertaining, there was not a bad song in their set. Anyway, if The Civil Wars are performing on any stage in your town, go see them!  They are quite simply, AMAZING!

"With their playful banter and exquisite harmonies,
they create music that is as haunting as a nocturne,
soothing as a lullaby."
