Acclaimed songwriter and guitarist David Rawlings will release his freshly pressed third album, Poor David’s Almanack, on August 11th via Acony Records. For Poor David’s Almanack, Rawlings leaves the Dave Rawlings Machine moniker behind and serves up a wry mixture of acoustic and electric music rich in ageless American vernacular. The album of ten new songs was crafted 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.

The touring iteration of Rawlings’ band, the all-star Dave Rawlings Machine, will embark on the first leg of a national tour this August to support Poor David’s Almanack, as well as perform favorites from the first two Dave Rawlings Machine records, A Friend of A Friend and Nashville Obsolete.

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 The Harrow and the Harvest (2011), the much lauded and latest Rawlings release, Nashville Obsolete, which landed on numerous 2015 year-end bestof lists, and the 2001 GRAMMY-nominated masterpiece Time (The Revelator). 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.

    David Rawlings and Gillian Welch are national treasures, IMHO. One of my favorite sets ever was the Machine with John Paul Jones on mandolin at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival a few years back. Amazing!

    Needless to say, I would cherish the chance to see them again!

  11. Hayley February 27, 2018 at 3:50 pm #

    You may leave the tickets under the strings of my banjo or fiddle. Both, of course, are located on the back porch under my old wooden rocking chair. A warm breeze may also be used as means of delivery.

    David Rawlings is one of my guitar heroes – I would be so psyched to get to see him perform. I can’t say enough about how much I love his playing style – many hours of YouTube watching, as well as listening to his recordings. Seeing him LIVE would be amazing…

  24. Christine Skorjanc March 1, 2018 at 12:03 pm #

    This would be a great night out & surprise for boyfriend

  25. Melissa Robinson March 1, 2018 at 2:51 pm #

    Would love to see this show, because that man can get that guitar to do anything he wants, and watching Dave and Gillian sing together is magical.

  28. Jess K March 2, 2018 at 2:31 pm #

  35. Alex Gordon March 5, 2018 at 11:14 am #

    I would love to go to this show for a multitude of reasons: 1) Dave’s work with Ryan and songwriting ability. He’s version of “To Be Young” is so fresh and heartbreaking, I’ve always preferred it to Ryan’s. 2) Hs cover of Bright Eyes’ “Method Acting” into “Cortez the Killer” is just absurd. Still get goosebumps listening to that. And of course Gillian’s work with Bright Eyes is an added bonus :). I’m probably late to submitting this, but honestly it would be a great show to bring my girlfriend to and help expose her to some great jams. Thanks for the consideration!

  36. Danielle March 5, 2018 at 1:36 pm #

    I would really enjoy this show.

  37. Lee Widener March 6, 2018 at 12:23 pm #
