ELLNORA 2011 FULL LINEUP AND EVENTS TO BE ANNOUNCED JUNE 15
Luther Dickinson has been selected to serve as artist-in-residence at ELLNORA: The Guitar Festival at Krannert Center in Urbana, Illinois, September 8-10, 2011.
Raised in the cradle of American roots music, Luther Dickinson is the son of the late Memphis/Mississippi musician and record producer Jim Dickinson. Luther emerged on the national scene in the mid-90s when Grammy nods began for the North Mississippi Allstars (a collaboration between Luther, his brother Cody, and Chris Chew). In 2007, he was tapped to join The Black Crowes, making his recording debut on its 2008 album, Warpaint.
At ELLNORA, Luther's role will include reading from his late father's soon-to-be-published memoirs, musically collaborating with Grammy Award winner Alvin Youngblood Hart and pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph, and participating in other as-yet-to-be-announced programs during the three-day festival. Take a look at some of the confirmed artists below.
