this acoustic collection of songs interpreted simply, recorded live, solo or with a small group of friends, celebrates dickinson's relationship between music, songs, the written word & legacy.

‘Blues & Ballads’ celebrates the American oral tradition of blues & folk songs - The songs themselves tell the story of the lad growing up in modern day rural south amongst first generation Memphis rock ‘n rolling, song collecting, folk bohemians, disapproving prerock ‘n roll holy rollers & citified punk rockers & modern day blues giants, experiencing the miracle that was Fat Possum Records & Hill Country Blues in the 90s.
