Luther Andrews Dickinson (born January 18, 1973 in Memphis, Tennessee, United States) is the lead guitarist and vocalist for the North Mississippi Allstars as well as lead guitarist for The Black Crowes. He hosts Guitar Xpress on the Video On Demand network, Lifeskool (formerly Mag Rack).

He was born in West Tennessee to Mary Lindsay and Jim Dickinson, a Memphis record producer. Dickinson grew up playing concerts and gaining recording experience with his father and brother, Cody. The family moved to the hills of North Mississippi in 1985. Luther befriended the musical families of Otha Turner, R. L. Burnside, and Junior Kimbrough. They were the inspiration for Luther and Cody to form the North Mississippi Allstars in 1996. The North Mississippi Allstars have been nominated for three Grammies in the Best Contemporary Blues category. Luther produced two records on Otha Turner, "Everybody Hollerin' Goat" and "From Senegal To Senatobia".

Luther was recently featured in an issue of Rolling Stone as one of the new guitar gods. He is one of the true blues-rock guitarists continuing the southern style with Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman similarities. He shows influence from Mississippi Fred Mcdowell, Mississippi John Hurt and Furry Lewis on the acoustic guitar. He has recorded with the Replacements, Mojo Nixon, Toy Caldwell, Billy Lee Riley, John Medeski and Robert Randolph , John Hiatt, Jon Spencer, Otha Turner, R. L. Burnside and Jim Dickinson.
