Congrats to Epi fan Dave Rawlings whose new album Poor David's Almanack has been getting rave reviews. Rawlings recently announced a new 33-date headlining tour that will kick off in November and carry on through March, 2018.  See the full schedule below.

Poor David's Almanack features Rawlings with longtime music partner Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, Brittany Haas, Ketch Secor, and Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith and was produced by Ken Scott whose credits include The Beatles, David Bowie, Supertramp, Elton John, and Lou Reed's epic (and Epiphone Riviera driven) LP Transformer. Mr. Rawlings is particular about his guitars and gave the new Epiphone Masterbilt Century Olympic a work out (and an approving nod) during our classic interview.  

"Mine is a '35," Rawlings told Epiphone.com when describing his original and road worn Olympic. "I found it at a friend's house. I know that at the time I found it, I had it in my head that I was interested in trying to find an instrument that would sit in a little more of a mid-range part of the tonal spectrum."

Check out our interview and be sure to see Dave and longtime music partner Gillian Welch when they come to your town.
