Joe Henry to be included on (really cool) Civil War compilation (updated)

This fall will see the release of a very intriguing 2-disc compilation of Civil War-era tunes, recorded by some fantastic artists.  Joe Henry will contribute "Aura Lee" — and maybe some production work on the other tracks?

Read more about Divided & United and hear Loretta Lynn's contribution here.

UPDATE:  A bit more info (from The Man himself):

  • "Aura Lee" features 3-part harmony courtesy of The Milk Carton Kids
  • JH also lends production duties to tracks by Taj Mahal, John Doe, Carolina Chocolate Drops and Chris Hillman (plus assistance on the Sam Amidon track)
  • And in a neat twist, JH also produced the track from T Bone Burnett, who was Joe's production mentor
