American Roots Music at Annenberg Center: December 7

Acclaimed songwriter and guitarist David Rawlings makes his Annenberg Center debut on Thursday, December 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Zellerbach Theatre. 

 His August 2017 release, Poor David’s Almanack, features a wry mix of acoustic and electric sounds rich in ageless American vernacular. Boasting an “almost supernatural chemistry,” the album marks Rawlings’ eighth collaboration with singer-songwriter Gillian Welch. The duo, joined by Paul Kowert (of The Punch Brothers), Willie Watson and Brittany Haas, will perform the album’s “sweetly engaging, impressively wide-ranging collection of American roots music” (NPR) as well as favorites from previous records.

For tickets, visit, or call the Box Office at (215) 898-3900. This performance is co-presented with World Cafe Live.
