Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore

Acoustic, Americana/Roots, Blues, Folk, Live Music in Bar/Club, Country

The pair of roots music legends have been friends for 30 years, but only in 2017 did the Grammy winner Alvin and Grammy nominee Gilmore hit the highway together to swap songs, tell stories, and share their life experiences in an intimate acoustic environment. Though Texas-born Gilmore was twice named Country Artist of the Year by Rolling Stone, and California native Alvin first came to fame in the hard-rocking rhythm and blues band The Blasters, they discovered that their musical roots in old blues and folk music are exactly the same. Audiences will original compositions from the two as well as songs from a wide spectrum of songwriters and styles - everything from old jug band numbers to Merle Haggard and Sam Cooke, to the Young Bloods.
