The plan was to spend an hour with David Rawlings, an artist who’s releasing brilliant folk albums, touring to huge acclaim and driving a new string band agenda. The plan was to ask him about his emergence in recent years as a leader and artist of note after so many years of playing the not silent but often unbilled partner of Gillian Welch. Then, in a happy turn of events, Gillian Welch came along. And the conversation became an exploration of a legendary partnership that changed the course of roots music.

Also, a visit to the studio of quietly influential producer, songwriter and guitarist Thomm Jutz. He left his native Germany focused on making something happen in bluegrass and country music in Nashville. He certainly has, most recently his solo debut album.
