The Grey Eagle announced today that the venue will host Gillian Welch on Monday, April 26, for a rare show of her material. She’ll be joined by Dave Rawlings.
By contrast, the two recently played the Orange Peel (with Dave Rawlings Machine), drawing a sell-out crowd (at nearly twice the capacity).
Welch is known for her harmony-laden, sparse-but-innovative take on American music — old-time, ballads, folk songs. She and Rawlings have a rarely-matched musical chemistry, a clever songwriting style and a knack for pulling out old standards and sprucing them up. They’ll be fresh off the Ramble at the Ryman gig, with Levon Helm in Nashville.
The wise will get tickets asap for this one. $25.
