Eight Gigs: Dave Rawlings Machine
Mon., Oct. 3, 8 p.m., Crest Theatre, $25-$32
Dave Rawlings Machine rolls into Sacramento on Monday evening following a weekend appearance at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Gillian Welch and her musical partner, David Rawlings, have been bringing disciplined yet spontaneous musicianship and artful performances to devoted audiences for more than 20 years. From their perfectly matched voices to the tasteful interplay between Welch’s rhythmic strumming and Rawlings tasteful lead lines, they deliver compositions steeped in numerous country and folk traditions, but far from old-timey music. 1013 K Street, www.daverawlingsmachine.com.
