Luther Dickinson to tour Europe

Luther Dickinson

Luther Dickinson will tour Europe in September, including four dates in the UK.

The North Mississippi Allstars man is on the road to support third solo album Blues & Ballads, a two-volume title released in February.

Dickinson recently said: “The album 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.

“Is it too late to tell your and your community’s tales through the vinyl groove and the block lettered, mimeographed page? Never!

“The lives and legends of modern-day folk music heroes will live on. The spirit of American roots rock’n’roll will shout to the man, the masses, and disposable pop culture: ‘Fuck off. Even in death, the art lives on.’”

Blues & Ballads is on sale now in CD, vinyl and digital formats.
