The Harrow & The Harvest - The Making of an Album Cover.

This is truly one of the coolest things I've seen musicians do in a very long time, making absolutely certain that the packaging representing their album is as unique and timeless as the songs they create together. I suppose it makes sense that the musicians in question—Gillian Welch & David Rawlings—are already songwriters I adore, respect and admire. They're on tour throughout the United States from now until December and, even though it doesn't look like they'll pass through Florida (regardless of how much subtle online begging I do), I'm going to do my best to go and meet them where ever it is they'll be. And, even though it'll be the first time for me, I imagine hearing their songs live will be like meeting a dear, old friend, with a hug I don't quite want to end.
