Legendary guitarist with the Blasters and the seminal band X, Dave Alvin has a varied career, stylistically and musically speaking. Alvin returns to record for Mountain Stage for the sixth
time this Sunday, July 26, at the Culture Center Theater. Also joining us are Ben Kweller, Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers, The Duke & the King, and Cyril Neville.
Alvin made two solo stops and four appearances on Mountain Stage with The Guilty Men. This time around Alvin has built up a tremendous super-group of female performers - calling themselves the Guilty Women. A number of these women - Cindy Cashdollar, Nina Gerber, Laurie Lewis, Christy McWilson, Sarah Brown, Amy Farris and Lisa Pankratz - have appeared on Mountain Stage before, either on their own as members of other groups.
Alvin has also played a large role in the production of a tribute to his friend, and longtime Guilty Man, Chris Gaffney, "Man of Somebody’s Dreams: A Tribute to the Songs of Chris Gaffney." Gaffney and his band, The Hacienda Brothers, appeared on Mountain Stage in 2006.
Tickets for this Sunday are available online, at Taylor Books in downtown Charleston, or at the Culture Center Theater on the Capitol Grounds on show-day. We look forward to seeing you there.
