[BLUESY ROCK] Trio North Mississippi Allstars may have started its band with a bit of hubris behind it—brothers Luther (guitar) and Cody Dickinson (drums) had no claim to fame when they started more than 10 years ago, and said claim came from roping R.L. Burnside’s kid into playing with them. Somehow, with bassist Chris Chew (no relation to that Charleston dude) in tow, the band’s become ubiquitous on the festival circuit, and it’s no wonder. Veering toward the Skynyrd side of the country-blues-rock spectrum, the group’s gained momentum, but nary a bit of pretension. This is country rock sung in an off-key that lets the slide-guitar do the talking, and on 2011’s Keys to the Kingdom, the Allstars proved themselves, finally, to have earned their name through a universally appealing and charmingly askew rust-bucket of a sound that more than befits its loaded name.
