On "Ain't No Grave," a track from his new solo album, the singer-guitarist Luther Dickinson stares death right in the face, quite literally. The song's opening words are "I looked death dead in the eye as he passed me by." But the frontman for the North Mississippi Allstars isn't indulging in morbidity; he's delivering a deeply felt tribute to his late father, James Luther "Jim" Dickinson.
I caught up with Cody Dickinson, drummer, keyboardist, rub board player and vocalist of the North Mississippi All Stars backstage just prior to their Telluride Town Park MainStage Sunday show at The Fourth Annual RIDE Festival (July 11 and 12, 2015) in Telluride, Colorado, where the NMA also played a blistering late night sold-out set in Telluride's venerable Sheraton Opera House.
This RIDE Festival featured the likes of Jonny Lang, Gov't Mule, The Temperance Movement, Band of Heathens, Dorothy, Bloodkin, Jeffrey Foucault, Zella Day, Moon Taxi, Ayron Jones and the Way, Mike Farris, Baskery, Current Swell, The Yawpers, Joint Point, Joan Osborne with Trigger Hippy, Widespread Panic doingtwo consecutive nights of long, mind-blowing sets -- and so much more, including Warren Hayes guesting all over the place. For my money, the North Mississippi All Stars nailed it, hands down. Their shows were definitely the best of the best on a weekend of many, many magical musical mystery moments in the cool Western Slope high Rocky Mountain air. New Mexico's own outlaw/guitar gunslinger Eric McFadden rode shotgun as a guest performer with the All Stars -- an extra bit of lagniappe sweetness -- and Lightin' Malcolm, who gave us magnificent solo hill country blues sets himself, held down the bass duties with the All Stars with sweat, swagger, and inimitable style.
