An Evening with David Rawlings
Thursday, December 7
Music University City & West Philly
Acclaimed songwriter and guitarist David Rawlings makes his Annenberg Center debut! Rawlings’ August 2017 release, Poor David’s Almanack
, features a wry mix of acoustic and electric sounds rich in ageless American vernacular. Boasting an “almost supernatural chemistry,” the album marks Rawlings’ eighth collaboration with singer-songwriter Gillian Welch. The duo, joined by Paul Kowert, Willie Watson and Brittany Haas, will perform the album’s “sweetly engaging, impressively wide-ranging collection of American roots music” (NPR) as well as favorites from previous records.
