Alvin has a wide musical palette. In addition to Sir Doug and Bob Wills-type western swing, Alvin Crow performances will feature 50’s and 60’s rock and roll, music by Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, Roky Erickson and an assortment of other singers too numerous to mention. On top of all that he will perform sets of what he calls hardcore country music. This is his bread-and-butter. He sings from the works of the great Jimmie Rodgers, Lefty Frizzell, Ray Price, “The Three Holy Hanks” — Hank Williams, Hank Thompson and Hank Snow — Buck Owens, Ernest Tubb, Webb Pierce, Harold Jenkins, Baldemar Huerta, the wonderful but obscure D. K. Little, Waylon Jennings and, of course, Willie, in addition to the own satchel of interesting and entertaining songs Alvin has written himself, along with many, many other great country artists that are too numerous to mention.
And he plays a fine fiddle, too.
