(HUDSON, N.Y.) – The Grammy Award-nominated North Mississippi Allstars and singer-guitarist Anders Osborne will combine forces as N.M.O. (North Mississippi Osbornes) at Club Helsinki Hudson on Sunday, March 1, 2015, at 8pm. The evening will feature one acoustic and one electric set, combining the Southern blues-rock approach of the North Mississippi Allstars with Anders Osborne’s unique brand of New Orleans soul to make for a new American roots fusion.

Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson, sons of the late, legendary Memphis musician and producer Jim Dickinson (whose credits include Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones), form the core of North Mississippi Allstars, which was founded in 1996. Right out of the gate, their 2000 debut album, “Shake Hands With Shorty,” garnered them a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues album. Two more nominations followed in the same category for subsequent recordings.

In his review of the Northern Mississippi Allstars show at Club Helsinki Hudson last March, local music critic Seth Rogovoy wrote, “In a single phrase, Luther Dickinson could evoke Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, and Eric Clapton.”

Bluesy singer-guitarist Anders Osborne left his home in Sweden at age 16 and traveled around the world, eventually settling in New Orleans, where he has been a mainstay of the music scene as both a guitarist and songwriter, collaborating with Galactic and Tab Benoit, as well as Phil Lesh & Friends.
