Acony Records is excited to announce a string of spring tour dates for Gillian Welch. The duo of Welch and David Rawlings will hit major US cities, including San Diego, Austin, and Dallas, on their two-week run. Welch and Rawlings will be performing songs from The Harrow & The Harvest, Welch's 2011 GRAMMY-nominated record that Rolling Stone deemed "as haunting and beautiful as ever." The complete list of tour dates is below, and more information can be found at www.gillianwelch.com.
The Harrow & The Harvest has been met with wide critical acclaim, receiving nods in Paste, American Songwriter, Uncut, Mojo, and Q in their Best of 2011 lists. The Los Angeles Times admired the record's "lilting voices, vivid lyrical twists and crisp acoustic flourishes," while the Associated Press was enthralled by the album's "10 songs that suspend time and reduce the entire world to a bare, slat-floored room." American Songwriter praised the new songs as "defiantly spare and spectral, featuring the dueling guitars and voices of Welch and longtime partner Dave Rawlings. Their playing sounds tighter and more intuitive than ever," and The New Yorker was won over by the "splendid record, full of intricacies and deep feeling and subtle associations and turns of mind."
