Ian Siegal & The Mississippi Mudbloods Recruit the Dickinsons for Candystore Kid
North Mississippi Allstars’ Luther and Cody Dickinson appear on the new Ian Siegal & The Mississippi Mudbloods album Candystore Kids. Produced by Cody Dickinson, the funk/country/soul/swamp rock record was recorded at Dickinson family patriarch Jim Dickinson’ famed Coldwater, MS Zebra Ranch studios. In addition, blues guitarist Alvin Youngblood Hart performs throughout the 11-song album.
Siegal also recorded his Blues Music Awards nominated release The Skinny at Zebra Ranch. Candystore Kids takes its name from a line in the song “Loose Cannon,” and, according to Siegal, “the thrill he felt as he pick-‘n’-mixed some of the greatest players on the contemporary blues scene.” On this recording, Cody plays percussion, drums and piano while Luther provides guitar and mandolin.
Siegal will perform with The Mississippi Mudbloods featuring Cody Dickinson and Luther Dickinson this fall. The group will kick off a European tour at London, UK’s The Borderline on November 8.
