Happy Year of the Earth Dog

Happy Year of the Earth Dog. Sounds friendly and likeable doesn't it? I hope it's a good one for all of us.

I'll be going on the road a lot this year. I've been having lots of fun playing music with Dave Alvin the past year and we'll be doing more of that throughout 2018. It's been a privilege sharing the stage with him. Not only is he a great songwriter and extraordinary guitar player, he's a genuinely good guy. We  have a deep well of shared musical heritage to pull from and our live shows may possibly be more fun for each of us as they are for our fans.  

This spring, I'll be playing a few shows with Carrie Rodriguez and Ruthie Foster, amazingly talented musicians and songwriters. I don't know how I got so lucky to get gigs with them.  Carrie will make you cry and Ruthie will save your soul.   Together, we offer a wide spectrum of Texas music. 

Butch Hancock and I will play some shows together whenever our schedules mesh. You can catch us on March 13 at Threadgill's during SXSW. And I'm sure we'll have a few Flatlander's shows when Joe Ely, Butch Hancock and I can find the molecules lining up correctly for our three schedules.

I'm gonna make a big effort to keep everyone updated through the so-called social media channels this year.  My wife is re-doing my website and we're going to keep it fresh and up-to-date. 

Stay tuned to this website, facebook, instagram and spotify. And sign up for my newsletter here so you get announcements about ticket sales for shows as soon as they are announced.

    Saw your remarkable performances last night at the Old Church in Portland. My wife and I and our eight friends all agreed that we were very fortunate to be there in the sold out audience! Thanks for coming to Portland once again...please keep us on your schedule!

    Hey Jimmie Dale, Just read the (three page with photos!!)article in the LA Times regarding your collaboration with Dave Alvin. Really looking forward to hearing the CD. I just downloaded Billy the Kid and Geronimo for my radio show this Saturday on KX935, 10 to noon. I feature you and Dave along with Carrie and Ruthie. Come do a live set on my radio show like the old days in Telluride. Much love and respect from Amy Obrand's mom...Cindy

    Agreeing with previous comment about Old Church in Portland show, with Dave Alvin. Myself and my son were in heaven listening. Please play shows in the Northwest as often as is fun for you guys. Can't thank you enough for that performance.

    Shared a couple of cervezas with you a long time ago ... at the bar, after your set at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, CA. Looking forward to seeing you with Dave Alvin at The Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA in July!
