Dave Rawlings New Album – Poor Man’s Almanack

Dave Rawlings Machine – Americana Honors and Awards 2015

 

David Rawlings Poor David’s Almanack will be released 
August 11 via Acony Records

Acclaimed songwriter and guitarist David Rawlings will release his freshly pressed third album Poor Davids Almanack on August 11 via Acony Records.

For Poor David’s Almanack, Rawlings leaves the Dave Rawlings Machine moniker behind.  The new album of ten songs was crafted by studio hands Ken Scott (Beatles, David Bowie) and Matt Andrews on analog tape during a week of sessions at legendary Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

Rawlings and longtime compatriot Gillian Welch joined together with Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, Brittany Haas, Ketch Secor, and Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith of Dawes to produce a highly-anticipated album.  Five of the songs were penned by Rawlings and Welch and five by Rawlings alone.  Full album info and credits below.

 

 

The touring iteration of Rawlings’ band, the Dave Rawlings Machine will embark on the first leg of a US national tour this August to support Poor David’s Almanack, as well as perform favourites from the first two Dave Rawlings Machine records, A Friend of A Friend and Nashville Obsolete.

This release marks the eighth studio collaboration between Welch and Rawlings.  Their creative partnership spans over two decades and includes the GRAMMY-nominated The Harrow and the Harvest (2011).

In recognition of their remarkable career, Welch and Rawlings were honoured with the Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in 2015 and the Berklee American Masters Award in 2016.
