The Newton Theatre presents North Mississippi Allstars

(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents North Mississippi Allstars on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at 8:00pm. Nothing runs deeper than family ties. When families rally around music, they speak this oft-unspoken bond aloud and into existence. After 25 years, four GRAMMY® Award nominations, and sold out shows everywhere, North Mississippi Allstars opened up their world once again on their 13th album, "Set Sail" welcoming other family (by blood and by the road) into the fold.

As legend has it, Luther Dickinson and Cody Dickinson started the band in 1996 as a loose collective of like-minded second-generation musicians who shared a local repertoire and regional style. As sons of legendary producer and musician Jim Dickinson, Luther Dickinson and Cody Dickinson have been producing records themselves since they were teenagers. Separately, the brothers have produced albums by Samantha Fish, R.L. Boyce, Lucero, Amy Lavere, the Birds of Chicago, Ian Segal, and more. Luther Dickinson produced two records from Otha Turner, including “Everybody Hollerin’ Goat”, which was named one of the 10 most important blues albums of the nineties. Luther Dickinson and Cody Dickinson co-produce North Mississippi Allstars records as the “Dickinson Brothers.”

Following 2019’s “Up and Rolling”, which received a GRAMMY® Award nod in the category of “Best Contemporary Blues Album,” “Set Sail” continues the band’s tradition of creating roots music that displays remarkable variety. Luther Dickinson and Cody Dickinson dig in with the production and different guitar tones; the record sizzles with hard yet understated groove, grown folk music. Luther Dickinson’s wide-ranging guitar style features jazz riffs, psychedelic sounds and soulful slide. Drummer and multi-instrumentalist Cody Dickinson draws on roots music, rock, jazz, rap and other styles to create rhythms that propel the band’s sounds and move it forward. The Dickinson brothers have recorded and toured with Mavis Staples, Charlie Musslewhite, John Hiatt, Robert Plant and Patty Griffin, G Love, Jon Spencer, the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Los Lobos and the Black Crowes.

Tickets range from $29-$49 and are available for purchase online starting Friday, November 17, 2023 at 10:00am. Doors are at 7:00pm, showtime is 8:00pm.

The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey. The historic theatre was founded in 1924. It is a beautifully restored 605 seat performing arts center in the heart of Sussex County, presenting diverse programming, including world-renowned music acts, comedians, family productions, holiday shows and much more.
