Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, part 1

Part one of an exclusive interview with Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, recorded in Nashville, plus some of Ricky's favourite country and Americana songs of 2018 so far.

As we're halfway through 2018, Ricky plays some of his favourite country and Americana songs of the year so far.

Plus the first part of an exclusive interview with singer-songwriters Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, recorded in Nashville. They discuss their recent projects, the stories behind some of their most-loved songs and reveal some future plans.

The duo share stories about driving across America in their truck, listening to cassettes and AM radio. They explain the difference between a Gillian Welch and David Rawlings project and why the Dave Rawlings Machine turned into Poor David's Almanack. Plus how they've brought traditional folk songs to a new audience through the albums they've produced with Willie Watson. As they re-examine their own back catalogue and their influences, they celebrate their love and belief in the power of song.
