Gillian Welch at the Shepherds Bush Empire

Phil introduced me to the country songs of Gillian Welch, and this evening we headed west for an evening’s entertainment, rendez vousing with his mum and heading into the Shepherds Bush Empire where the show started off with Old Crow Medicine Show as support, followed by two sets by Gillian and her singing partner David Rawlings providing fantastic guitar action. A lovely evening, fantastic singing and showmanship, bu a rather long and painful journey home on late night buses.
