Watch Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin Play Big Bill Broonzy’s Guitar

.........................................................

Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin recently made a stop at the Old Town School of Folk Music to handle and play a guitar by blues guitarist, songwriter and singer Big Bill Broonzy. The Chicago Tribune was there to cover the brothers connecting over Broonzy:

“History aside, it’s an amazing guitar,” Dave Alvin said, relaxing in a chair in the building’s lower level, alternately picking out tunes, studying the instrument and asking questions about Broonzy’s Chicago days.

He passed it to Phil, who played and sang a little.

“Gee, I wish I could have played this when I could play,” he said with a laugh.
