interview: Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars

January 15, 2020 @ 3:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Join WMSE’s Terry Havel on the WMSE airwaves as he chats with guitarist, Luther Dickinson, of the North Mississippi Allstars. His band visits Milwaukee tonight for a show at Turner Hall Ballroom.

The North Mississippi Allstars have been dynamically performing the distinct and funky Hill Country blues associated with their home state for over 20 years. Their latest album, Up and Rolling, is a musical accompaniment to a forgotten role of film.  Shot before the turn of the century, the photographs resonate with the music of four families from the Mississippi hills. The album captures the communal spirit upon which the band was founded.
