Delving into Gillian Welch

gillianwelchGillian Welch is someone who has been on my radar for quite awhile. Always on the long finger and consistently highlighted as ‘one to give greater exploration’. It was Ryan Adam’s debut, ‘Heartbreaker’ where I first heard of Welch and promised myself to give greater inspection.

A couple of years ago I saw her live at Midlands Festival in Mullingar. She was fantastic then and again I noted her as one to get into. More recently her name entered my head when she appeared on the Dark was The Night compilation with Conor Oberst.

Anyhow, all that brings me to here and it’s only now I’m beginning to delve into her four album back catalogue. Thank God I’m on time anyhow – she hasn’t released a record in six years. Here’s some songs I’m liking at the moment. The song with Bright Eyes a Conor Oberst tune.
