ELLNORA | The Guitar Festival featuring Luther Dickinson

Luther Dickinson is the Artist-in-Residence at ELLNORA | The Guitar Festival taking place this weekend at the Krannert Center for Performing Arts in Champaign-Urbana, IL.  He's making the rounds all weekend and kicked things off two nights ago at the Opening Night Party with a sit-in with Malian guitar great Vieux Farka Toure.  The guys jammed for a few songs and we've got some great video from one of the highlights here.  Luther will be making surprised and scheduled sit-ins all weekend at shows, many of which are free and open to the public.  

 

Daniel Lanois' Black Dub (featuring Brian Blade, Trixie Whitley and Daryl Johnson) as well as Toshi Reagon and BIG Lovely also performed at yesterday's Opening Night.  An estimated 2100 people came out for the $5 show, which was held on various stages in the Krannert Center's lobby.
