    We saw her and David Rawlings from the 3rd row in a small venue a few years ago, it was incredible watching them live and close up. That 1935 Epiphone is some guitar too!

    Same. A couple times. But once in Lawrence, KS at Liberty Hall. It was fabulous and memorable...a do not miss.

    They're amazing... I'm a long time GW fan... saw them a decade ago, then about a year and a half ago when it
    was the David Rawlings Machine at a smaller venue... they blew everyone away....
    IMO David R one the most talented, soulful guitarists on the planet!

    There's just something about the duet genre that is so cool, and these 2 work it to perfection.

    This is my favorite song of theirs, "Dear Someone" recorded at the Ryman for the documentary/movie "Down From The Mountain." This version has the added benefit of John Hartford on the fiddle and Mike Compton on mandolin. I think this is the last footage recorded of John Hartford before his untimely passing.
