John Hiatt, Jimmy Davis, Sid Selvidge with Jimmy Crosthwait, Amy LaVere, Shannon McNally and North Mississippi Allstars will hit the stage on August 8th at a benefit to raise money for Memphis legend Jim Dickinson. Dickinson — a songwriter, producer and session player who sat in with the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan and helmed albums for the Replacements and Big Star — underwent triple-bypass surgery in June. In an attempt to help defray the cost of his mounting medical bills, the artists are uniting at Memphis’ Peabody Hotel Skyway for a very special show. Tickets to the event cost $125, and donations can also be made via the Paypal address FriendsOfJimDickinson@gmail.com.
