Luther Dickinson & the Wandering

9 p.m. Friday, May 18. The Duck Room at Blueberry Hill, 6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City.

Luther Dickinson & the Wandering
Luther Dickinson is also the leader of the North Mississippi Allstars.

For Luther Dickinson, leader of the North Mississippi Allstars, the Wandering was a simple matter of free association: banjo and guitar led to fife and drum, roots musicians Amy LaVere and Valerie June led to Shannon McNally and Sharde Thomas, and it all came together in a surprisingly cohesive old-time ensemble of talented women taking the lead on spirituals like "Glory, Glory," archetypes like "Old Joe Clark" and why-the-hell-not larks like the Byrds' "Mr. Spaceman." Dickinson stays out of the gals' way, focusing instead on his prickly slide guitar and scrappy banjo playing.

Luther Dickinson has gathered an all-star cast for his band, the Wandering.
