“...swampy guitars, loose vocal harmonies and a deep, deep groove.”
—American Songwriter about The North Mississippi Allstars
“…a national treasure…and mighty funky…”
—The New York Times about The Dirty Dozen Brass Band

Shake and Holla” is a brand-new, curated tour that showcases foot-stomping Mississippi "hill country" blues and the funky, syncopated sounds of New Orleans brass. Touring together for the first time ever, the Grammy-nominated and Blues Music Award-winning North Mississippi Allstars will be joined by legendary Dirty Dozen Brass Band in a musical celebration of two great southern musical traditions. Steeped deeply in their own traditions, both artists also are part of the vanguard of blues and soul music, with Luther Dickinson of North Mississippi Allstars also having toured and recorded with The Black Crowes, while The Dirty Dozen have toured and recorded with artists ranging from Widespread Panic to Elvis Costello to Dave Matthews.

Appearing with them on this tour is blues guitarist, vocalist, and drummer Cedric Burnside, a Grammy-nominated artist in his own right as well as the grandson of legendary Fat Possum recording artist RL Burnside.

For one special tour, these three artists will be playing their own favorite selections as well as collaborating throughout the show on a grab bag of great songs and exploring the musical connection between the Mississippi Delta and Bourbon Street...right down Highway 61.

“Although Hill Country Blues is decades old, Burnside’s interpretation of the genre cuts deeper than most modern takes.”
