Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore
Presented by Zeppelin Productions
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 those spontaneous shows, audiences enjoyed classic original compositions from the two, as well as songs from a wide spectrum of songwriters and styles – from Merle Haggard to Sam Cooke to the Youngbloods. Mutually energized and inspired by these performances, Dave and Jimmie agreed to hit the road again in 2018…this time with a full band and some new stories to share!
This special concert is presented at The Valley Dale Ballroom, located at 1590 Sunbury Road in Columbus. The historic venue is celebrating its 100 year anniversary after recently undergoing an extensive renovation, and has hosted concerts by some of the biggest names in music over the years. Free parking is available on site, along with a full bar and food truck. The doors open at 7 pm, showtime is 8 pm, and seating is general admission.
