Dave Rawlings & Gillian Welch check out Jim's Loar and '32 Martin D-28

We had a really nice surprise today when Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings stopped by to see their friend and our owner, Jim Baggett. These incredibly nice (and exceptionally talented) folks were just passing through after their recent Omaha performace for the Concert for Equality, making their way home to Tennessee. They jawed with Jim, but played some too in his office, including a very sweet rendition of “Hand Me Down My Walkin’ Cane”, which I was able to hear quite nicely at my desk.  They were kind enough to let me snap a few photos while they played, the results of which are here…man, I do love my job. Here’s a nice youtube video of them doing “Sing That Rock n Roll”. Enjoy.
