"Watson covers versions of 'Gallows Pole,' 'Dry Bones,' 'John Henry,' 'When My Baby Left Me,' and 'Take This Hammer' among others, bringing to them an authenticity and honesty you might have thought couldn't possibly have survived the millennium, but you'll need no convincing listening to this record. ... The sonics here are 100% of what you like and hope every record you buy might sound like. The naturalness and transparency will slay you ... The record is well-pressed on standard weight vinyl at QRP and the paper on cardboard jacket befits what's inside." — Music = 10/11; Sound = 10/11 - Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com.

Folksinger Vol. 2 is the highly anticipated second solo album from folk artist Willie Watson. Produced by David Rawlings and recorded on analog tape at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, the album features 11 songs unearthed from the canon of American folk music and brought to light by Willie's remarkable voice and wise beyond his years performances. Special guest appearances by the Fairfield Four, Gillian Welch, Morgan Jahnig and Paul Kowert round out the arrangements on this stunning sophomore collection.
