Roots/rockers, Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin and the Guilty Ones are heading back to Glasgow in April, touring their latest acclaimed album, Lost Time.

They are making up for lost time, for sure, as they will play the Art School on Tuesday, April 19, scene of a triumphant reunion gig back in October 2014.

Previous album, the Grammy-nominated Common Ground – the  Californians’ first collaborative effort in 30 years and first as brothers since Dave left the Blasters in 1985 – focused on Big Bill Broonzy songs.

But this time round they reprise the music of James Brown, Leadbelly, Willie Dixon, Blind Boy Fuller and Leroy Carr, among other greats.

They also cover four songs by Big Joe Turner, as a tribute to the blues legend they met as teens, and who became their friend and mentor. Their aim is to honour and expose these great artistes to new listeners.

Dave and Phil are mainstays of the roots/rock scene so the chance to bring them to Glasgow again was not to be missed.

Their last gig was memorable here, so we can expect an another big deal treat.

Of their last Scottish visit, Americana-uk wrote:

“…what an utterly glorious, bluesy bash they served up, confirming that the brotherly reunion was both well judged and inspired.”
