Known for their masterful vocal harmonies and intrinsic chemistry, Rawlings and Welch have a storied musical partnership. Since they founded a Acony Records together in 2001, the duo has collaborated on eight studio albums in various iterations, now including both their solo work and together as Dave Rawlings Machine.
No strangers to critical acclaim, Rawlings and Welch received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in 2015 from Americana Music Association and the American Masters Award from Berklee College Of Music, Rawlings' alma mater, in 2016. Welch is a GRAMMY winner for her work on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, which took home Album Of The Year for the 44th GRAMMY Awards in 2001, and Rawlings is a GRAMMY nominee for his part in Welch's 2011 album, The Harrow & The Harvest.
Accolades aside, it's quite evident that Rawlings and Welch love to play. Fans can look forward to two full sets each night of the tour from Rawlings, Welch and their band, according to Rolling Stone. Tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 29.
