Gillian Welch

So I've already answered a question that's been popular in discussion of this upcoming Something Completely Different show, namely...are these your four favorite women? Not really. I think I may have met Joanne Rand sometime, but questions like these have become more and more difficult to figure out. Let's say...I've heard a lot of all four, though I'm far from being a completist for even one of them. I do know that 

This week on Folk Alley, in honor of Women's History Month, it's an encore broadcast of a show first heard in August 2017 featuring songs by artists who made NPR Music's 'Turning The Tables: The 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women' list. We spotlight our favorite folk, roots, and Americana artists who made the cut including: The Roches, Iris DeMent, Dixie Chicks, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Cassandra Wilson, Bonnie Raitt, Nina Simone, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Gillian Welch, Mavis Staples, Joan Baez, Bobbie Gentry, and much more.
