When guitarist and singer-songwriter David Rawlings put together his third album, Poor David’s Almanack, he created a story written in the timeless language of American folk. Blending electric and acoustic guitar with twangy vocals, the album took shape in Nashville, where Rawlings was joined by fellow musicians Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, Paul Kowert and Brittany Haas. Pitchfork says the record shows us “the joy to be found in old songs, in old instruments, in old sounds, in old perspectives.”

Saturday, December 9. $33-37, 7:30pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
