Freedom is Luther Dickinson’s sonic signature, on stage and in the studio. He grew up Mississippi and learned the power of artistic adventure firsthand from his father, Jim Dickinson, who produced albums for Big Star and The Replacements and recorded with everyone from Bob Dylan and Aretha Franklin to Ronnie Hawkins and the Rolling Stones. Luther followed in his father’s footsteps, earning a reputation as a fearsome session guitarist before breaking out internationally as a songwriter and performer with North Mississippi Allstars, launched with his brother Cody in the late 90’s. They’ve earned multiple GRAMMY nominations, starting with ‘Shake Hands With Shorty,’ and most recently with ‘Up and Rolling,’ nominated for a 2021 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album. Favorites at Bonnaroo, Jazz Fest and Newport Folk, the band is hailed by Rolling Stone for their “boogie blues and fuzzed-out funk,” while the NY Times praises Luther Dickinson as “an impressive player in the Southern guitar-hero mold.” Luther’s restlessness and versatility fueled his solo career, landing him stints with John Hiatt and The Black Crowes in addition to studio work with Patty Griffin, Devon Allman, Seasick Steve and more. Frequent collaborations with New Orleans artists, including Terence Higgins, Kirk Joseph, Jake Eckert, Eric Heigle and many others continue his family tradition of making roots music with remarkable variety and distinctive style.
