DVD Review of the Mississippi Sheiks


By jeff - Posted on 12 November 2010

Here's an snippet from a recent review on a DVD I edited. The full review can be read here - http://thebluegrassspecial.com/archive/2010/november10/mississippi-sheik...

Smartly edited, and beautifully framed from multiple angles, the footage captures the headline performers’ passion and the band’s unflagging enthusiasm on two nights when spirits were running high indeed, and the resulting music carried some spiritual heft no one could have anticipated. That’s a tribute to Dawson’s instincts as both musician and producer, to the artists who were invited to participate and brought their best to the stage, and to the rich, timeless Mississippi Sheiks music. Sometimes all the stars are aligned properly, causing wonderful, even miraculous events to ensue, and this is one such occasion. Verily, the Mississippi Sheiks live.
