Blues and Ballads is an acoustic collection of songs interpreted simply, recorded live, solo or with a small group of friends, celebrating singer-songwriter Luther Dickinson's relationship between music, songs, the written word and legacy. Blues and Ballads celebrates the American oral tradition of blues and folk songs, not only being passed down and evolving but being transcribed (the original recording technique) and entered into the discipline of written sheet music and songbooks.

"I represent the Memphis underground and the mid-south region's music. This art is not for the masses. It is meant to wither and fade and then rise from the ashes again and again, evolving and mutating." — Luther Dickinson
