Gillian Welch and David Rawlings have recorded 8 studio albums and have lent their talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. Recently, Welch & Rawlings released their latest collaboration, DavidRawlings’s PoorDavid’sAlmanack, a wry mixture of acoustic and electric music rich in ageless American vernacular. The album of ten new songs 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.
