Hangout Festival North Mississippi Allstars are back in action and ready for another round of rousing tornadic riffs and licks, live at the Soul Kitchen this Saturday night (Dec 17) with special guests, The Weeks.
Luther Dickinson (who played with Black Crowes at Hangout as well) was in town last Saturday when he joined NOLA legend Anders Osborne for a night of funky soul rock and roll. They dropped by the ZEW studio for a chat about how a NOLA dude teamed up with a blues dude from north Mississippi (they had mutual admiration for each other’s skills and finally got to meet during Jazz Fest), Anders’ new album on Alligator records, and is that Sonny storyline on Treme inspired by Anders’ life story?? Inquiring minds.
In case you didn’t know, North Mississippi Allstars have another collection of earthy rockin’, strong songs (first album since legendary daddy Jim Dickinson passed away) that includes a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again”. Asked why they chose that particular song, Luther told us a sweet story of his dad working a different chord arrangement to the tune while he lay in a hospital bed. You can listen to the interview below.
