CD reviews for Gillian Welch

Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg CD review - Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg
Gillian Welch's album "Revival" was a revelation. The fact that T Bone Burnett - the ultimate roots rock curator - produced it, gave good reason to give it immediate attention, and insightful songs like "Barroom Girls" and "By the Mark" cemented the news that Welch was truly something special. With "Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg," Welch has expanded the original 10-track album into a 21-song opus. And while this extensive collection of »»»
The Harrow & the Harvest CD review - The Harrow & the Harvest
Eight years ago, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings released the exploratory and occasionally misunderstood "Soul Journey," where Welch took a more directly personal stance in her writing as the duo injected a shade more vitality (and electricity) into their old time musical presentation.

Soul Journey
Bass and drums on a Gillian Welch album? It's true. The rural-sounding songstress, who makes most of her music with only the most spartan of instrumental settings, broadens her sound on this, her fourth album.Son Volt-er Jim Boquist contributes bass, Mark Ambrose offers up a little acoustic guitar, Ketcham Secor brings some fiddle and Greg Leisz adds Dobro to the mix on this disc, which hews close to Welch's signature sound: a little Appalachia along with attention to the no-nonsense elements of country music. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: There's a lot to be said about The Felice Brothers – The Felice Brothers have soldiered on, occupying the fringes of the musical world with ups and downs. After not knowing whether the group would even continue following the departure of half of the band a few years ago, The Felice Brothers continued with a new rhythm section and a new album, "Undressed," that is heavily political.... »»»
Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
