UKs premier contemporary bluesman collaborates with leading lights of the new Mississippi blues scene.

 

 

In a dream team of the best contemporary blues talent, there is sure to be a place for the guys who make up the Mississippi Mudbloods, the collective title for this transatlantic collaboration that cooks up a powerful brew of hill country blues and southern rock.

 

Ian Siegal is arguably the most respected and creative British exponent of the blues since the sixties. In 2009 he was the first non-American to take the no.1 slot in Mojo magazines review of blues albums. This year he became the first Brit to be nominated for Best Contemporary Blues album in the BMAs (Blues Music Awards), in effect, the Grammys of the blues. He also has British Blues Awards for best band and male artist.

 

Cody Dickinson and Luther Dickinson hail from Coldwater, Mississippi and are the driving force behind the Grammy-nominated North Mississippi Allstars, a personal favourite of Robert Plant with whom they toured. Drummer Cody is also a respected record producer and founder member of Hill Country Revue; while Luther, who also plays with The Black Crowes, is widely regarded as one of the finest slide and roots guitarists working today. Wherever these brothers go energy follows!

 

The bands debut tour in July was greeted by rave reviews and their show in Bury was broadcast on BBC Radio2 as part of a feature on the London and Manchester Bluesfest. Now they return to promote a new album Candy Store Kid (release Oct 15), recorded at the legendary Zebra Ranch near Memphis.
