Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore 2019


Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore

 

Presented by Whistling Swan Productions
September 13th, 2019
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.
