The CD
Guitarist Luther Dickinson says the band’s first CD combines old songs and lively jamming.
Roots Rock
Luther’s style starts with taking songs that old bluesmen played solo and adapting them for the band.
Electric Guitar
Dickinson says he couldn’t make a CD without some jamming electric guitars.
Influences
The Dickinson family had no idea there were so many great musicians living in the North Mississippi hills when they moved there… but there were.
