*Gillian Welch @ Moore Theatre (info)

Gillian Welch is an uncompromising musical renegade with four critically acclaimed albums and a Grammy Award under her belt.  Writing and performing with her longtime partner, David Rawlings, they present their haunting songs like rock and roll chamber music, with two acoustic guitars and two voices welded together. Their tunes have been covered by such American legends as Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, and Solomon Burke.  Their music defies easy categorization — it embraces, and is in turn embraced by, the pre-eminent ambassadors of folk, bluegrass, R & B, punk, and rock and roll. ($30, 8pm)
