McGonigel's Mucky Duck says
Jimmie Dale Gilmore is a native of the Texas Panhandle, born in Amarillo, Texas and raised in Lubbock. Early musical influences were Hank Williams and the honkytonk brand of country music. In the 1950’s he was exposed to the emerging rock and roll of Texas greats Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, as well as to Johnny Cash. He was profoundly influenced by the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the folk and blues revival in the 1960’s. In the early 1970’s he founded The Flatlanders, who have been performing as a group off and on for more than four decades. He has also had a prolific career as a solo artist.

Jimmie Dale Gilmore is coming to the Duck with his son, singer/songwriter Colin Gilmore. They will perform the progressive, alternative country music that Jimmie Dale and fellow Flatlanders band members Butch Hancock and Joe Ely first introduced in 1973. As a solo artist, Rolling Stone named Jimmie Dale Gilmore “Country Artist of the Year” two years straight and he received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Artist of the Year.

Colin Gilmore is a fine songwriter in his own right. He has been a touring musician for 14 years, has several albums to his credit and has played venues all over this country and in Japan and Italy. He also enjoys the opportunity to perform with his dad from time to time.
