The Civil Wars' Joy Williams and John Paul White have severed their musical partnership and are currently on indefinite hiatus, though they recently released an EP of covers. In that context, World Cafe revisits the pair's first rush of success with the Barton Hollow album in this 2011 interview and performance.
