Album Review

Award-winning producer and songwriter T-Bone Burnett and the celebrated Nashville duo the Civil Wars come together to write and perform the music for Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush's documentary on hunger in America. On A Place at the Table, Burnett and the Civil Wars perform music that evokes America's Appalachian past with a contemporary undercurrent, reflecting how poverty has been an issue of the past and the present in the United States. As the film focuses on three real-life families struggling to put food on the table, this music mirrors their struggles and their desire for a better life for themselves and their children. Released only a few months before the Civil Wars' successful self-titled second album, A Place at the Table is a moving collection of themes that reflects the duo's growing maturity as well as their work with one of the leading lights of the Americana scene.

Customer Reviews

Just what I needed….

I am a huge fan of the Civil Wars and while it was different to hear them sing with more than just a guitar, it was just as different to hear their songs without any words….and different is always good in my book.

I am a sucker for their melancholy, quiet music so I bought a handful of the more solemn tracks in the following order: Focus, Getting Worse, Finding North, Barbie at the Bodega and Witnesses to Hunger. After listening to all of them straight through, I was hooked. I went back to the iTunes page and purchases the rest of the album.

I have never heard of the movie, but the soundtrack has caught my attention and I want more. Time to find the preview online. Take a chance and buy some songs. It is worth $9.99


Amazing... Enough said.
