North Mississippi Allstars at the 2010 North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic

The North Mississippi Allstars perform at the 5th annual North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic in Potts Camp, MS on June 26, 2010. The Allstars are a trio but bassist Chris Chew could not be a part of this performance, so they were billed as the NMA DuoLuCo with Luther and Cody Dickinson performing. (Cody Dickinson plays the bass line on a keyboard while also playing drums!)

Here’s the opening of their set:

At the end of the set, the Allstars invited guitarist Kenny Brown and members of the Rising Star Fife & Drum Band to join them for a medley:

The North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic is a two-day event hosted by Kenny Brown the last weekend in June. It is patterned after the long-running annual picnic held by the late Otha Turner of the Rising Star Fife & Drum Band. “Glory Glory Hallelujah” was a favorite of Otha Turner and “Goin’ Down South” was written by the late R. L. Burnside with whom Kenny Brown played guitar.
