Lobero LIVE is thrilled to welcome Dave Rawlings Machine to the Lobero Saturday, Oct. 18, at 8 p.m. 

Dave Rawlings is a highly acclaimed guitar player, singer, songwriter and producer best known for his work with some of folk music’s biggest names.

The beloved duo of Rawlings and Welch recently added another accolade to their career accomplishments as they accepted the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting from the Americana Music Association on September 16, 2015.

Acony Records recently released Nashville Obsolete, the highly anticipated second album from Dave Rawlings Machine.

Recorded on analog tape at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tenn., Nashville Obsolete features seven original compositions written by Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings.

Touring in support of the new album, the current touring iteration of the Machine — featuring band members Rawlings, Gillian Welch, Paul Kowert (Punch Brothers), Willie Watson (Old Crow Medicine Show) and Brittany Haas (Crooked Still) — will provide a night of distinctive picking, high lonesome songs and many other fine acoustic entertainments. 

Tickets are on sale now at Lobero.com or by calling the Lobero Box Office at 805.963.0761. Tickets are $40 for reserved seating.

No VIP tickets are available for this performance. All prices subject to facility fees.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
