NEW ALBUM ‘Downey to Lubbock,’ is now available for pre-order.
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 Grammy winner Alvin and Grammy nominee Gilmore decided to hit the highway 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. In these spontaneous shows, audiences will not only hear classic original compositions from the two, but also 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. 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.
