Having released the great Shepherd In a Sheepskin Vest earlier this year, Bill Callahan is back with two lovely covers of classics: Lee Clayton’s ” “If You Could Touch Her at All” (which has been recorded by Willie Nelson & Waylon Jennings, George Jones and others) and Leonard Cohen’s “So Long, Marianne.” Both get splashes of pedal steel and Bill makes really them his own. Listen below.

Having toured this summer for Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest, Bill has one U.S. date on his 2019 schedule (San Antonio, TX on 12/2) and a few 2020 Australian dates with Xylouris White in March. All dates are listed below.
