The North Mississippi Allstars on Weekend Edition Saturday March 12th:
Longtime Memphis musician and producer Jim Dickinson always told his sons, “You need to be playing music together. You are better together than you will ever be apart.” Luther and Cody Dickinson grew up hearing those words, along with the musical sounds their father helped shape.
When Jim Dickinson died in August 2009, the brothers coped the way they knew best: through music. Those sessions led to a new album from their band, The North Mississippi Allstars, called Keys to the Kingdom (Songs of the South).
