Rita Houston http://kunc.org en Gillian Welch: Stark, Mysterious Beauty http://kunc.org/post/gillian-welch-stark-mysterious-beauty Sometimes one microphone and two guitars is all you need — especially when the two musicians using them are <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15237439/gillian-welch" target="_self">Gillian Welch</a> and <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15356985/david-rawlings" target="_self">David Rawlings</a>. That's how the duo recently shared songs from Welch's newest album, <em>The Harrow &amp; The Harvest</em>, during a return trip to WFUV in New York.<p><em>The Harrow &amp; The Harvest</em> is a stark beauty, recorded alone in Welch and Rawlings' home studio.
