Luther Dickinson Hambone's Meditations on 180g LP
Grammy Nominated for Best Folk Album!
is most well known as the head of the North Mississippi All-Stars
and the lead guitarist for The Black Crowes
. He has become known as one of the best guitar players around, whose slide guitar style has been likened to the great Mississippi Fred McDowell. Luther had the privilege of being schooled by his father, Jim Dickinson, and by the legendary Otha Turner and R.L. Boyce on the finer aspects of blues guitar playing.
His 2012 solo acoustic instrumental album Hambone’s Meditations was born out of Luther’s passion for the acoustic folk and blues music of the American South that surrounded him growing up. Drawing inspiration from acoustic heroes like John Fahey and, more recently, Jack Rose, Hambone’s Meditations features five original compositions and a reworking of a gospel medley. The result is 7 powerful tracks from the heart and soul of Luther Dickinson.
