Gillian Welch

In-studio performance
Having recently settled in Nashville, Gillian is a relative newcomer to the country music scene. After graduating from UC-Santa Cruz Gillian moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. "While I was there I got into the Boston music scene and started listening to The Pixies, The Breeders and Throwing Muses, but I was playing this backwards mountain music in clubs and coffeehouses. I'm not straight ahead bluegrass cause I don't play fast enough and it's definitely not folk. It's not country, especially in the mainstream sense of what country is. Someone applied the label of 'American Primitive' to John Fahey once. I thought that was a good name for what we do too." -
