Singer-Songwriter Gillian Welch to perform An Evening with Gillian Welch at House of Blues in Mandalay Bay Las Vegas on June 23, 2018.
Gillian Welch’s rich and remarkable career spans over 20 years and is a pillar of modern acoustic music. After moving to Nashville in the early 1990s, Welch was launched into the public consciousness when Emmylou Harris recorded a cover of Welch’s “Orphan Girl.” Her career continued to flourish when her 1996 debut Revival was released to critical acclaim. This was followed by her 1998 release Hell Among The Yearlings, a stark duet recorded with partner David Rawlings that further solidified the duo as a force in the folk music scene.
When Welch served as executive producer, as well as performer, on the eight times platinum O Brother, Where art Thou? soundtrack, she was awarded the GRAMMY for Album of the Year and simultaneously was nominated for her own Time (The Revelator) which Rolling Stone called one of the best albums of the 2000s. Their 2011 release The Harrow and The Harvest felt like a sonic cultivation of what Welch and Rawlings had been honing in on and perfecting for decades, and the awards circuit noticed, nominating the album for Best Contemporary Folk Album and Best Engineered Album at the GRAMMYs, Artist of the Year (Welch) and Instrumentalist of the Year (Rawlings) at the Americana Honors & Awards.
Gillian Welch and David Rawlings have recorded eight studio albums and have lent their talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. Recently, Welch & Rawlings released their latest collaboration, David Rawlings’s Poor David’s Almanack, a wry mixture of acoustic and electric music rich in ageless American vernacular. They continue to tour the world together and support each other’s projects while simultaneously writing, lending their talents to countless fellow artist’s recordings, and working to release their highly-celebrated catalog on phonograph record for the first time ever.
