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.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
