Milo Greene opens for The Civil Wars tonight. The Civil Wars are the headliner, but Milo Greene makes a good case for showing up early to catch the opening act. With male-female harmonies and a style that blends folk and pop, the quintet’s music is a good gateway to the music of The Civil Wars, the duo of John Paul White and Joy Williams. Milo Greene’s Graham Fink toured with the red-hot duo last year and saw firsthand the dizzying rise to success that The Civil Wars enjoyed in 2010. “From the first show we played, they are a real powerhouse to behold,” Fink said. “The audience was transfixed by them.” Milo Greene will release its debut album in July. It was recorded at the “magical” Bear Creek Studios in Washington state — the same studio that Brandi Carlile fell so much in love with that her next album is simply called “Bear Creek.” But if you can’t get in because the show is sold out, don’t fret about missing Milo Greene. It will be at Kilby Court in August.
