Luther Dickinson (of North Mississippi Allstars and Black Crowes, et al.) chose the perfect women as they interpret these mostly traditional and classic songs. The five of them are in lock-step the whole way through. It’s Dickinson on guitar, mandolin and banjolin; Shannon McNally on guitar; Amy LaVere on bass; Valerie June on banjo; Sharde Thomas on fife and drum (she’s the granddaughter of fife great Otha Turner); and the women share vocal duties. The sound is steeped in traditional music - country, blues, jazz, folk - and it is all sublime. A great album!! No FCC’s.|
