Opening the Beale Street Music Fest 2012 with the North Mississippi Allstars

Luther and Cody Dickinson are sons of legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson, and they are the driving force behind the North Mississippi All-Stars. The rich Hill Country Blues legacy of Junior Kimbrough and R. L. Burnside and the fife-and-drum band music of Otha Turner all have contributed heavily to the All-Stars sound, and while the band is very much a Mississippi entity, it is also a Memphis one, and there is no more appropriate act to open the Beale Street Music Festival.
