Chieftains feat. Bon Iver: Down in the Willow Garden

The Celtic traditionalists and the cathedral-folk troubador get together for some creepily beautiful murder ballad magic. Even when he’s singing about sending a saber through his "dear little girl," Justin Vernon’s immolating mumble-croon can convince you he’s the victim, and the Chieftains’ lithe pipes and fiddles give his dark twisted fantasy enough Irish spring to put it over.
