Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore

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, they decided to hit the highway to swap songs, tell stories, and share their life experiences in an intimate acoustic environment. Though Texas-born Jimmie Dale Gilmore was twice named Country Artist of the Year by Rolling Stone, and California native Dave Alvin first came to fame in the hard-rocking roots band The Blasters, they discovered that their musical roots in old blues and folk music are exactly the same. In these spontaneous shows, audiences will not only hear classic original compositions from the two, but they also choose songs that include a wide spectrum of songwriters and styles—everything from old jug band numbers to Merle Haggard and Sam Cooke, to the Youngbloods 1960s anthem “Get Together.” One thing is for sure, when Alvin and Gilmore go on stage together, it's guaranteed that each of these rare and special performances will be different from the last. A show you don’t want to miss.
