By now you heard the bad news that The Civil Wars have cancelled all their upcoming shows and are giving each other some space. What’s a lover of melodic Americana duos with lovely harmonies that have possible ambiguous romantic ties to do?!Â Here are 5 alternatives to quell those nerves until the reunion tour is announced.
Â Ry Dalee and Evangeline – I don’t don’t much about this Oklahoma duo but I like what I hear!
Caitlin Cary & Thad Cockrell – Begonias – Sure it was a one-off release from 2005 but these two Americana vets released one of the most gorgeous romantic duo albums ever. It even comes through in this crappy video.
Chapel Hillâ€™s Mandolin Orange are the talented Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz whose tunes will soothe your soul.
Charleston, SC’s Michael Trent and Cary Ann areÂ Shovels and Rope and are a bit rougher than The Civil Wars fare, but certainly no less talented.
