Fresh off a stint at SXSW, The Civil Wars are taking a brief tour through the United Kingdom, before returning stateside to play the Beale Street and Sasquatch Festivals, plus a few other random shows. Here’s the video for their track, “Barton Hollow.”
Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
