0

With the incredible and continuing support that has been shown by fans of Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, Love Police Touring have announced a very special musical celebration called Dream A Highway featuring Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings Machine, Willie Watson and Haas Kowert Tice at Festival Hall in Melbourne on February 20.

The show will deliver over 4 hours of music and ticket prices start as low as $47 plus booking fees to allow any and all interested parties to come and experience this magical event.

This show comes at the end of a three-week nationwide tour that has seen Gillian and Dave drive some 6937 kilometre’s of Australia’s highways to deliver their shows night after night. Beginning in Perth as the duet Gillian Welch, and rolling all the way East to Melbourne, then North to Brisbane, Gillian and Dave are then joined by three musical amigos to transform into Dave Rawlings Machine for a run of shows all down the East Coast.

This last special show will be a gathering of all the possible musical entities this group of extremely talented Artists can deliver.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday February 4 at 9am thru www.ticketmaster.com.au

Willie Watson is a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and banjo player who hails from Watkins Glen in upstate New York and was a founding member of the most respected bands within the realm of modern Americana, Old Crow Medicine Show. Released in 2014 his debut solo album, Folk Singer Vol. 1, was described by Rhythms Magazine as “relentlessly riveting” and by respected Americana blog Post To Wire as “Highly recommended.”

With just three acoustic instruments – fiddle, guitar & upright bass – Haas Kowert Tice are building a new kind of roots music.  Made of fiddler Brittany Haas (Crooked Still), bassist Paul Kowert (Punch Brothers), and guitarist Jordan Tice (Tony Trischka), they have come together on their triumphant debut instrumental album, You Got This.
