Thank You 2017!

As the year comes to an end, we want to thank all the fans who’ve bought the new record, come to a show, or supported us in any fashion! We can’t wait to get back on the road again in a few weeks, and we are humbled by POOR DAVID’S ALMANACK being included in some of our favorite publications’ end-of-year lists. Here are a few of the inclusions:

“Nobody bends and breathes between notes quite like David Rawlings on guitar, and nobody harmonizes like David and his longtime partner Gillian Welch… In writing Poor David’s Almanack, David and Gillian set out to craft new folk songs that have the timeless quality of music passed down for generations.”
NPR Music “10 Albums That Made 2017 Brighter”

“…what remains crystal clear is the quality of the music. That’s especially true for standout track “Cumberland Gap,” a foot-stomping ode to one of the most treacherous mountain passes in Appalachia.”
Rolling Stone’s “25 Best Country Songs of 2017”

“Most of these originals sound like vintage folk classics, and his sibling-deep harmonies with Welch – who sings throughout – remain glorious.”
Rolling Stone’s “40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2017″

“As ever, he plumbs the dark corners of American music and makes old sounds mean new things, with a deft picking style and a playful sense of structure and repetition.”
Stereogum’s “The 10 Best Country Albums Of 2017″

“Almanack is an endlessly inventive and lively collection of new folk tunes that sound old, as though Rawlings hadn’t written them but had found them in the back of some old antique store in the middle of nowhere. And yet, just like the old LP technology experiencing its own resurgence, these old-sounding songs somehow sound current, relevant, prescient”
The Bluegrass Situation’s “BGS CLASS OF 2017: ALBUMS”

As an end-of-year present, we also made a music video for Cumberland Gap! You can watch it right now on Apple Music.
