about

An ambitious double album, Luther Dickinson’s Blues & Ballads (A Folksinger’s Songbook: Volumes I & II) features twenty-one tunes from throughout the Memphis musician’s impressive life and inimitable career – brand new songs, songs he wrote with his rock & roll band the North Mississippi Allstars, songs he learned from friends and family, songs passed down to him by his heroes and mentors, songs that have lived in the American subconscious for decades now – presented in a similar, stripped down palette of voice, guitar, drums and some blues fife and Beale Street piano. “This acoustic collection of songs interpreted simply, recorded live, solo or with a small group of friends reflects my relationship between music, songs, the written word and legacy,” Dickinson explains. “Blues & Ballads celebrates the American oral tradition of blues and folk songs, not only being passed down and evolving but being transcribed (the original recording technique) and entered into the discipline of written sheet music and songbooks.”
