Welch, Rawlings blend story and song during Thomas Wolfe Lecture

October 12, 2018

Singer/songwriter Gillian Welch, known for her at-times dark Americana songs, was the first musician to be awarded the Thomas Wolfe Medal. The Thomas Wolfe Society and Carolina created the medal in 2000 to commemorate the birth of Wolfe, an alumnus (class of 1920) and author of novels such as “Look Homeward, Angel.”
