One of the best singers and songwriters around, Gillian Welch, has just added a last-minute show right here in the Triangle. Welch and her cohort David Rawlings will play the Cat's Cradle on Tuesday, April 27. It's the date on the Cradle's calendar left empty when Gossip canceled their show.
Tickets for the show will go on sale at noon tomorrow, April 22 via etix for $25.
It's good to see Welch returning to the lead role after a lengthy stint of the duo playing as the Dave Rawlings Machine with Rawlings singing lead, not that we don't love Rawlings too. There have rumblings of a new Welch album coming sometime in the hopefully not-too-distant future too. Her last full-length album is 2003's Soul Journey.
