North Mississippi Allstars

In an era where people are “playing” laptops and MPCs more often than ever, it’s refreshing to see some good ol’ fashioned stringed instruments hitting the stage. The North Mississippi Allstars have a few other tricks up their sleeves. Drummer/keyboardist Cody Dickinson plays the electric washboard while brother, guitarist/vocalist Luther Dickinson plays a cigar box guitar called a lowebow. Throw in bassist Chris Chew and the Southern rock trio is as authentic as it gets. Mixing blues, rock and country, the boys have a unique sound that fits nicely into the jam band category. Since 2000, the Grammy Award-nominated Allstars have been generating album after album culminating with this year’s Keys To The Kingdom. The record is a celebratory declaration of life in the face of death and is a welcome addition to any Americana/roots rock collection (Kyle Eustice).
