When Luther Dickinson isn't writing and performing with the North Mississippi Allstars or on the road with The Black Crowes, he plays the acoustic guitar — and lots of it. He recently released an acoustic instrumental record called Hambone's Meditation, a project called The Wandering featuring female singers from North Mississippi and Memphis, and the latest from the South Memphis String Band — an album called Old Times There, which features Dickinson, Jimbo Mathus, and Alvin Youngblood Hart.
