That's Phil Alvin, Richard. Dave Alvin is the lead guitarist and songwriter; his brother Phil is the vocalist/rhythm guitarist and a truly great harp player. (And he is on my top ten list of people whose singing voices I wish I had.)
BTW: The Alvin brothers have been recording and performing together again recently. Well worth it.

Dave Alvin used to play harp in between singing lead for the 80s LA roots/rockabilly band The Blasters.
Other than that, "rockabilly" is a lot like blues, innit? Why not just start there? Although the typical rockabilly guitarist might need some training in leaving the spaces for a harp that a blues guitarist would.
