When two of the top acts in contemporary blues join forces for an album and a tour, it's not to be missed. N.M.O., or "North Mississippi Osborne," is the marriage of North Mississippi Allstars and Anders Osborne. The Southern blues-rock mainstays brought their new collaboration to the Old Rock House Saturday night for a three-hour show that provided some of the finest blues guitar work to be seen on any stage.
North Mississippi Allstars go for the gut with a fiery brand of Southern blues-rock that is uniquely their own.
The North Mississippi Allstars are the last of a dying breed.
