Jimmie Dale Gilmore with Colin Gilmore:

Kicking off the 2018 season on Saturday, January 13 will be Jimmie Dale and Colin Gilmore. This father-son duo have joined forces to create a truly unique performance style, summoning the spirits of their home town Lubbock, TX in their songs and stories.

For over 50 years Jimmie Dale Gilmore has been writing and playing his music that eludes categorization. With elements of folk, rock, country, blues and bluegrass his recordings have earned three Grammy nominations and he was named Country Artist of the Year three years running by Rolling Stone Magazine. His alliance with Joe Ely and Butch Hancock as The Flatlanders has them credited as fathers of the Alt-Country movement.

Colin Gilmore grew up in Lubbock, TX and spent nights as a child in nightclubs witnessing Joe Ely, Terry Allen and his own father Jimmie Dale Gilmore bring the stage to life. He developed a taste for Buddy Holly, Townes Van Zandt and bands like The Clash and The Pogues. He recently performed in and wrote songs for the critically acclaimed feature film ‘Barracuda’, which premiered at the SXSW Film Festival.
