Dave Rawlings Machine covered the Chuck Berry tune "Thirty Days" when they played Lawrence KS recently. I've not seen that song in their setlists on other nights on this tour.

A documentary that aired on PBS reminded me of some Gillian Welch songs about moonshinin'----

There are a few instances in the movie where 'shine and banjo-picking seem inextricably intertwined (though they missed the opportunity to include Welch's "Tear My Stillhouse Down" or "Copper Kettle"). :cry:

Hey Thanks Bill.

Yeah it's definitely more fun taking pictures of Carrie Rodriguez than of Jeff Tweedy :D

Looks like a great gig! Nice shots.

So was Carrie wearing the right kind of boots?

Thanks,

Here in Europe, The Old Crow Medicine Show are now opening for Mumford and sons and Gillian and Dave opened for Old Crow..

I don't understand why they weren't the headliners...

Wilco brought their own fans and the depressing folkies (sorry) like Damien Jurado, Emily Jane White, Iron&Wine etc. had their fans...

but I think that the audience at Gillian & Dave's gig was the most enthousiastic of the whole festival...

Oh yes.... not sure about the dead bird on her head though... :shock:

Someone likely posted about The Harrow and the Harvest, and if so, it was lost to the ages. :(

I just got around to listening to the album and I'm sort of underwhelmed. Scarlet Town and Hard Times are terrific, but I think it'll take a few (digital) spins for the others to grow on me.

Any opinions?

PS - The Way it Will Be sounds very nice as it plays in the background. I guess that one's growing on me. :D... now The Way it Goes sounds nice. Guess that's the way it goes. ;)

I think it's fabulous. It'll definitely grow on you. I think it's one of their strongest releases. Love the intertwining vocals. Wow!
If I died, he'd hear about it, eventually.
