Robert Randolph, John Medeski and the North Mississippi Allstars will come together as The Word this New Year’s. The supergroup will take the stage for holiday performances at Philadelphia’s Theatre of the Living Arts on December 30 and New York’s Terminal 5 on December 31. As previously reported, the group will also board Jam Cruise in January. The Word has only played select shows since its original outing in the early 2000s.
North Mississippi Allstars will also make two increasingly rare appearances this December. The group—which has been on an unofficial hiatus while Luther Dickinson tours with the Black Crowes—will headline Jackson, MS’ Hal & Mal’s on December 18 and Memphis, TN’s Minglewood Hall on December 19.
