Roots music legends, the Grammy winning Dave Alvin and Grammy nominee, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, decided to join forces and play music together in 2017. 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.
Since that discovery, Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore have recorded music and continued to tour together with their band The Guilty Ones, swapping songs, telling stories, and sharing their life experiences on stage.
This summer, with their new Single “Borderland”, they will hit the road again with their band, The Guilty Ones. Friends for over 30 years, their lively shows feature songs from the duo’s lauded first album, Downey To Lubbock, classic original compositions from the pair’s albums, and lots of new stories to share. A show you won’t want to miss!
