Gillian Welch

We'll welcome in the new year with Gillian Welch, one of the purest bluegrass / country / folk voices in American music, performing at the Ryman Auditorium ( original Grand Old Opry stage )

I've mainly listened to the most recent album, Soul Journey, which I absolutely loved. The Wikipedia biography above states that she was born in New York City and adopted on the day that she was born. Which explains a lot about what might have went into " Orphan Girl " and " Noone Knows My Name "

Her website is here.
