07/15 Sun 7:30 JIMMIE DALE GILMORE with special guest Twangtown Paramours $27.50


Jimmie Dale Gilmore is a native of the Texas Panhandle, having been born in Amarillo, Texas and raised in Lubbock, Texas. Gilmore's fans admire his fine tenor voice, which delivers expressive, pure, country singing. His earliest musical influence was Hank Williams and the honky tonk brand of country music that his father played. In the 1950s, he was exposed to the emerging rock and roll of other Texans such as Roy Orbison and Lubbock native Buddy Holly, as well as to Johnny Cash. He was profoundly influenced in the 1960s by the likes of The Beatles and Bob Dylan and the folk music and blues revival in that decade.

With Joe Ely and Butch Hancock, Gilmore founded The Flatlanders, which has been performing on and off since 1972. The band's first recording project was barely distributed. It has since been acknowledged, through Rounder's 1991 reissue, as a milestone of progressive, alternative country. The three friends continued to reunite for occasional Flatlanders performances, and in May 2002 released a long-awaited follow-up album, Now Again, on New West records.

Gilmore also had a small but memorable role in the 1998 movie The Big Lebowski as a bowler named Smokey, an aging, emotionally "fragile" pacifist threatened with a pistol by the main character's right-wing sidekick (John Goodman). He has also been a guest on Jay Leno, David Letterman, A Prairie Home Companion, and Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

The music of The Twangtown Paramours has been called "Sophisticated Americana," and is a hybrid of the Nashville and Austin music scenes. Their debut album was #11 on the Folk DJ chart in August, 2010 and remained in the top 40 of the Country Roots chart for the Summer of 2010. The Twangers were named one of the Artists On The Verge for 2011 by the Bluegrass Special magazine, finalists in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk competition, were chosen by Wanda Fischer of WAMC to be one of the emerging artists to showcase at NERFA and recently won the People's Choice Award at the Wildflower Festival in Texas.

Besides performing together as the Twangtown Paramours, MaryBeth sang background vocals for the late Eva Cassidy and Mike Lewis sometimes plays upright bass for Jimmie Dale.
