NEW! THE GUITAR AND SONGS OF JIMMIE DALE GILMORE AND COLIN GILMORE
Jimmie Dale Gilmore is an American music icon. His expressive tenor voice, with its distinctive Texas twang and deep folk and country influences, has captivated audiences for decades. Colin Gilmore’s style has clearly been shaped by his father’s music, but he builds on the traditions he learned growing up in the Austin, Texas, music scene. The two playing together, using both fingerpicking and flatpick styles, create a sound that only families singing and playing together can generate.
