Jimmy LaFave WEBOklahoma/Texas songwriter, Jimmy LaFave will bring his ‘red dirt’ music’ to open this year’s Glasgow Americana Festival on Wednesday, October 1.

He will perform with his band at Oran Mor, ensuring Glasgow Americana gets off to a great start.

It’s around 15 years since Jimmy, whose music lies brilliantly somewhere between Dylan and Guthrie, last played a Scottish date.

He effortlessly blends country, blues, folk, and early rock and roll in his own compositions or choice of covers. He has recorded around 15 albums – the last with new material was 2012’s “Depending On the Distance.”

And Kevin Morris, the Festival’s director, added: “We couldn’t have asked for a better act than Jimmy LaFave and his band to kick off this year’s event.

“His style of music really appeals to music lovers here.”

“His bluesy ballads are sung with such depth of feeling that even on a warm sunny day, they give you goose bumps.” – No Depression.
