Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Farthing Auditorium, Boone, NC- 10/21/2003

From review in by Kris Kehr :

"Speaking of Bill Monroe, at the end of the set she mentioned that Bill ended every show she ever saw with 'I'll Fly Away' (me too) and so she ended her set with this beautiful spiritual classic. Of course the audience would not let them leave and the 2 returned for a three-song encore. The second song was an unnamed new composition that one member of the audience deemed 'awesome' and I would say was heavily influenced by Neil Young's 'On The Beach' album in mood and chord structure and also the vocal arrangements of CSN, although the audience member said it simpler. They were brought back one more time for my favorite of their covers, Neil Young's 'Albuquerque'. I left feeling good about myself, with a tear in my eye."
