Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore

 

Presented by Whistling Swan Productions
September 13th
On Stage Together!

Roots music legends, Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, have been friends for 30 years, but only recently realized they had never played music with each other before. So in 2017, Grammy winner Alvin and Grammy nominee Gilmore, decided to hit the highway to swap songs, tell stories, and share their life experiences.

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. In these spontaneous shows, audiences enjoyed classic original compositions from the two, and also songs from a wide spectrum of songwriters and styles — from Merle Haggard to Sam Cooke to the Young Bloods. Mutually energized and inspired by these performances, Dave and Jimmie agreed to hit the road again…this time with a full band, an album, Downey to Lubbock and some new stories to share.

This concert is held in conjunction with Roots of the Rails organization.

Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore will be joined by Jon Langford, Rick Shea and Christy McWilson.

Event Details
Runs approximately 2 hours including intermission.
BABIES — Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN — Recommended for ages 9 and older. Helpful links to artists and show information will help you decide who is likely to enjoy the show. Please also consider the start time and length of the show when deciding whether to bring children.

Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we have found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
