Gillian Welch stops at the Folly in August; get your tickets in today’s presale
The last album we heard from folk singer and songwriter Gillian Welch was 2011’s The Harrow & The Harvest. That album came after an eight-year drought from Welch and her partner, songwriter and guitarist David Rawlings, and the reward for Welch’s loyal fans was wholly felt. The Harrow & The Harvest was dark, sparse and deeply intuitive.
Who knows when we’ll see another album from Welch — perhaps we’ve got another five years to go — but in the meantime, she and Rawlings have announced a new summer tour, with a stop at the Folly on Friday, August 14.
A special presale is going on today only; go here and use code “HARVEST15” or call the box office at 816-474-4444. Tickets officially go on sale Friday, July 10.
