interview: Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars

Tune into The Saturday Morning Blues Jam on WMSE with DJ Good John as he talks to Luther Dickinson – lead guitarist and vocalist of the North Mississippi Allstars – about the band’s part in the “Shake & Holla Tour”, rolling into Milwaukee at the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 19th.

The Shake & Holla Tour will showcase foot-stomping Mississippi “Hill Country” blues and the funky, syncopated sounds of New Orleans brass. Touring together for the first time, the Grammy-nominated and Blues Music Award-winning North Mississippi Allstars will be joined by the legendary Rebirth Brass Band for a musical celebration of two great southern musical traditions. Both artists are part of the vanguard of blues and soul music. Appearing with them is blues guitarist, vocalist and drummer Cedric Burnside, a Grammy-nominated artist and the grandson of legendary Fat Possum recording artist R.L. Burnside. Each artist will perform their favorites and collaborate throughout the show on a grab bag of great songs, exploring the musical connection between the Mississippi Delta and Bourbon Street… right down Highway 61.
