Colin Gilmore grew up in Lubbock, Texas spending many nights as a child in nightclubs like Stubbs where he witnessed songwriters Joe Ely, Terry Allen and his own father, Jimmie Dale Gilmore bring the stage to life. For 13 years now, Gilmore has been writing songs and playing Roots Rock music. His last album Goodnight Lane won fans across the world and had 4-star reviews in “Mojo” and “Uncut.” His upcoming album The Wild and Hollow’s recordings are happening in Austin and Chicago, under the direction of Rob Seidenberg and Tim Bennett. The album features two songs by Colin's lifelong friend Johnny Walker of “Archive War” and “Ignorance Park.” It also has a string section by Will Taylor and the band “Strings Attached,” as well as guest vocals by Amanda Shires, Sally Allen and a host of other talents. The official release of Gilmore’s new CD will be at the Buddy Holly Center during the concert on July 25th. This is a concert that cannot be missed!
