Welch Launches ‘Soul Journey’

Folk singer Gillian Welch releases her fourth studio album, Soul Journey, on Tuesday (June 3). Perhaps best known for singing with Emmylou Harris and Alison Krauss on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, Welch marked the album release with a three-night, sold-out engagement at Nashville’s Belcourt Theatre. In addition to new music, Welch and partner David Rawlings also sang “Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)” at the first show on Monday (June 2). Welch will open concerts for Norah Jones in the eastern U.S. throughout June. 06/03/03
