I first saw Dave Alvin perform in the mid-90s and found deep inspiration in his writing and playing. At least once a year I would see him perform live and the inspiration would be rejuvenated. When I got the call to play this particular gig I was surprised and thrilled. It was a real honor to be on stage with him and the wonderful Christy McWilson for City Winery Chicago’s musical opening night, not to mention being there with the incredible Robbie Fulks and Rob Gjersoe. The Chicago Tribune published a review of the show.
