The Civil Wars – Barton Hollow (2012)
Bit of a sore point – this album. In November 2012, we had tickets to see them for the Brighton leg of the ‘Barton Hollow’ tour. But, due to what was loosely dubbed ‘personal reasons’ at the time, they cancelled all remaining UK dates after a sell-out gig at London’s Roundhouse on 6th November. We found out the real reason soon enough as, just over a week later the duo of Joy Williams and John Paul White announced a permanent parting of ways due to unreconcilable differences. Seemed they had lived up to their name in more ways than one!
