David Rawlings is currently on his extensive, thirty-three date US tour, with stops in cities including Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Nashville, Richmond, and Atlanta (full dates below). Rawlings’ “evening with” tour is in support of his new album Poor David’s Almanack, and he and his all-star band will perform two full sets of music each night, including songs off his new album and favorites from the first two Dave Rawlings Machine records, A Friend of A Friend and Nashville Obsolete. Tickets for this tour are on sale now and you can find full information here.
David Rawlings’s third album, PoorDavid’sAlmanack, is out now on Acony Records. For the album of ten new songs, Rawlings leaves the Dave Rawlings Machine moniker behind and serves up a wry mixture of acoustic and electric music rich in ageless American vernacular. PoorDavid’sAlmanack was engineered by studio wizards Ken Scott (Beatles, David Bowie) and Matt Andrews on analog tape during a week of sessions at legendary Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. Rawlings and longtime compatriot Gillian Welch joined together with Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, Brittany Haas, Ketch Secor, and Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith of Dawes to produce an album for all seasons.
This release marks the 8th studio collaboration between Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Their creative partnership spans over two decades and includes the GRAMMY-nominated TheHarrowandtheHarvest (2011), the much lauded and latest Rawlings release, NashvilleObsolete, which landed on numerous 2015 year-end best‐of lists, and the 2001 GRAMMY-nominated masterpiece Time (TheRevelator). All releases are available on Acony Records, the independent label they founded in 2001. In recognition of their remarkable career, Welch and Rawlings were honored with the Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in 2015 and the Berklee American Masters Award in 2016.
