Welch Rarebits

It's mellow time again.
Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings have hardly been the most prolific artists on the planet with only 5 albums since 1996 - 6 if you count the album by Dave Rawlings Machine.
However in their case it is very much quality over quantity.
Their music seems to be of a bygone age. It is quite sparse with more than a hint of gospel and bluegrass to it.
Their involvement in Oh Brother Where Art Thou? brought their music to a wider audience.
I saw them play at a sold out Barrowlands- just the two of them and  their guitars on stage. You could have heard a pin drop- absolutely awesome.
This is from The Harrow and the Harvest her most recent album from 2011 purchased in Oxfam in Vicky Road, Glasgow.
You are only getting one track as you should really acquire all their albums for yourself. You will not regret it.
