Songwriter Gillian Welch met guitarist Dave Rawlings at Berklee College of Music, when both were auditioning for a country band. They’ve gone on to form one of the most celebrated songwriting partnerships in contemporary Americana music, writing for Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and others from their base in Nashville. Welch has also released five records with Rawlings of timelessly understated songs and impeccably intertwined voices. (Watch a Welch/Rawlings performance below.)
Welch’s most recent album is 2011’s “The Harrow & The Harvest.” She’s currently touring to celebrate the first vinyl pressing of that album, with two nights in Portland at the Newmark Theater Oct. 9-10.
