Gillian Welch Will Bring The Harrow & The Harvest Everywhere

Gillian Welch and her longtime partner David Rawlings have confirmed a 31-date outing. The tour will begin in Santa Cruz, CA on July 6 and come to a close in Charleston, SC on August 28. In addition to multiple headlining shows, the duo will perform at gatherings like Vancouver Folk Festival, Newport Folk Festival, High Sierra Music Festival and ACL. Welch and Rawlings will add a second leg to their tour this fall.

Welch is touring behind her latest record, The Harrow & The Harvest, which is scheduled for release on June 28. Discussing the new album, Colin Maloy of the Decemberists notes that it, “is a new Southern sound with the sort of songs you wouldn’t be surprised to hear issuing from some verdant, wooded hollow in Appalachia; Songs you’d expect to hear hollered from an Asheville grange hall, all too late in the evening. Songs with the wry humor of the back porch. Listen to this record with the lights low. Listen to it on an old radio, cradled next to your ear.”
