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?

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
