North Mississippi Allstars at Minglewood Hall 

The Dickinson brothers return to Minglewood Hall this Friday night, along with special guest Jim Lauderdale. With the way the show is being promoted, it's a safe bet that Lauderdale will be joining North Mississippi Allstars onstage, in addition to playing songs from his new album, Soul Searching Vol. 1 Memphis/Vol. 2 Nashville. Recorded in Memphis, Mississippi, and Nashville with Luther and Cody Dickinson (of the North Mississippi Allstars), Soul Searching was released in September to rave reviews. Paste Magazine called the Grammy Award-winning artist's latest album "vibrant and deceptively simple," and other media outlets like NPR and Country Weekly have given the album their seal of approval.

With a career that spans three decades, Lauderdale has long been at the forefront of the Americana movement, working with artists like Elvis Costello, George Strait, Lee Ann Womack, and Old Crow Medicine Show in the process. The North Mississippi Allstars certainly aren't a small-time act either, making the pairing of these two songwriting institutions an exciting match. Lauderdale was also the subject of the documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts, and hosts a critically acclaimed SiriusXM radio show with Buddy Miller, the aptly titled "Buddy & Jim Show."

As for the North Mississippi Allstars, the band has been riding the wave created by their 2015 album Soul Food. Luther and Cody have set out on two tours so far this year, one with Anders Osborne in February, the other with The Word this past October.
