Dave Rawlings Machine's barnstorming 2013 lineup is back for six nights only this summer! Gillian Welch, John Paul Jones, Willie Watson, and Paul Kowert join Dave Rawlings for an evening of distinctive picking, high lonesome songs and many other high caliber acoustic entertainments.
The Dave Rawlings Machine released its acclaimed debut record, A Friend of a Friend (Acony) in November 2009, and it sounds as good today as it did then. This was the first record by Rawlings, the guitarist, producer, singer and songwriter best known for his work with Gillian Welch and Old Crow Medicine Show.
The reviews for A Friend of a Friend were stellar:
“Songcraft as soul-baringly timeless as Twenties Delta blues.” 4 stars – Rolling Stone
“In his debut as Dave Rawlings Machine, Gillian Welch’s better half proves he can hold center stage with a reedy voice that ranges frm raucous bluegrass to soft potency.” – Time Magazine
“For nine songs over 40 minutes, Rawlings proves fascinating company…Rather than delivering a dry seminar on Americana, Rawlings keeps things lively and raucous thanks to energetic performances and a light touch on the production…he’s already been everywhere, but this debut suggests Rawlings is really going places.” – Paste
“This admirably self-effacing ‘friend of a friend’ and fondly regarded virtuoso has more than earned his 15-minutes plus in the musical spotlight.” 4 stars – Uncut
