Three of Mississippi's Finest Team Up

Three of our favorite Delta musicians are joining forces to tour and release an album. The South Memphis String Band, a trio composed of Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), Grammy winner Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Jimbo Mathus (Squirrel Nut Zippers), launches its first tour on April 23 in Dallas, Texas. The three friends, bound by Memphis and North Mississippi roots, will tour ahead of recording their debut album later this year. So far only two songs have been unveiled, both at the trio’s MySpace page.

Although they’d known each other for years, the trio’s musical spirit gelled last year when they recorded a yet-unreleased album with Luther’s father, legendary producer Jim Dickinson, called New Moon Jellyroll Freedom Rockers.
