Preview: Dave Alvin at The Musician, Leicester 15th April...
Sunday 15th April
Dave Alvin & The Guilty Ones
plus Kasey Anderson
Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and self-described "bar-room guitarist" Dave Alvin is widely considered one of the pivotal founders of the entire Americana music genre. Since forming the highly influential roots rock/R&B band The Blasters with his brother Phil in 1979, to his days with, X and The Knitters, and throughout his long and critically acclaimed solo career, Dave Alvin has mixed his varied musical and literary influences into his own unique, updated version of traditional American music. Beneath the iconoclastic reputation of Alvin and the all-star talent of his powerhouse band The Guilty Ones, there lurks the heart of Americana and roots music.
“There are two types of folk music: quiet folk music and loud folk music. I play both”. - Dave Alvin
