It's not often that understated, quiet, folk duo gets national TV shine, but here are Civil Wars performing on Letterman last night, providing a spacious take of their "Poison & Wine." This is a band that clearly doesn't want to pack a whole lot of stuff into their music, leaving this just as piano and guitar, and two entwined vocal performances. My favorite part? When Letterman checks the woman out.
Civil Wars' Barton Hollow is out now.
