Archives: Dave Rawlings Machine

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Dave Rawlings Machine in our studios. They were in between a two night run at the Boulder Theater and had enough time in their schedule for a live studio session. "The Machine" was breaking in a new line up featuring Dave Rawlings, Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, and John Paul Jones. They spoke about their harmonies, the forgotten lyrics of This Land Is Your Land, and the challenges of getting their schedules to align.

Over the years we have been very fortunate to have visits to our studio from Antibalas. This incredible band has consistently taken time out of their busy tour schedule to play a few tunes on our airwaves. As usual, our performance space was packed tighter than a NYC subway but the unstoppable power of Antibalas can never be contained and this session proved that fact once again.
