Dave Alvin

Dave Alvin likes to laugh. I like that. He was a founding member of rough-and-tumble roots rockers The Blasters way back when, and later The Knitters, and played with all kinds of folks of all stripes over the years, on top of a solo career that keeps going and going. But he sums it up by saying, “If you cut me open, I’m basically a blues player.” This was a fun conversation. Dave’s headlining opening day at the Roots On The River music festival 2016 in Bellows Falls, Vermont – Friday, June 3.
