NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS
8:30 p.m., Revolution. $18 adv./$20 d.o.s.

Fresh off the release of their fifth studio album, “Hernando,” the North Mississippi Allstars return to Little Rock on Wednesday. This latest project finds the Dickinson boys, Luther and Cody, and bassist Chris Chew in a stripped down context. Still committed to surveying the roots music of Mississippi, the band uses the album (produced by Jim Dickinson, father and Little Rock native) to continue to explore blues-rock, with a touch of boogie piano and guitar shuffle thrown in for good measure. Chew sings, impressively, on Champion Jack Dupree's “I'd Love to Be a Hippy.” This will be a fairly rare chance to get the NMAs this year. After the tour wraps in March, Luther hits the road with the Black Crowes, which he recently joined. Fusionist bluesman Alvin Youngblood Hart opens the show.
