Wed, Jul 17 8:00 pm
Anders Osborne: At one point on his 2019 album, Buddha and The Blues, Anders Osborne sings, “Oh, it’s a miracle we still care. Oh, it’s so wonderful we’re still here. We’re still here!” He’s not going anywhere either… Osborne’s six-string virtuosity, inventive musicality, and poetic songcraft underpin an ever-expanding three-decade catalog celebrated by fans and critics alike. As a sought-after studio talent, his writing resounds through Keb Mo’s GRAMMY® Award-winning Slow Down, Tim McGraw’s number one “Watch The Wind Blow By,” and covers by Brad Paisley, Jonny Lang, Edwin McCain, Aaron Neville, and more. His output live and in the studio spans working with everyone from Eric Church, Toots and the Maytals, and John Scofield to The Meters, North Mississippi Allstars, and Galactic. His extensive touring history encompasses gigs, collaborations, and performances alongside everyone from Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, and Stanton Moore to The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh and Jackie Greene. Not to mention, he lights up the screen on an episode of the HBO hit Treme. Plus, he has garnered acclaim from USA Today, Guitar Player, Relix, Offbeat, and more. Marc Ford: Most famously known from his work as a blues-rock powerhouse with The Black Crowes in their prime (1991-1997), Marc Ford is one of the world's preeminent guitarists, having performed and recorded with artists like Ben Harper, Gov’t Mule, The Jayhawks, Widespread Panic, Izzy Stradlin, and Booker T. Jones. But on his new album 'The Vulture,' it's the timelessness of his songwriting that demands attention. Far from a nostalgic nod to the glory days of the musical past, 'The Vulture' is a fantastic return to form for Ford and a refreshing reminder to the world that rock music is still alive and relevant. Marc is also on the road as a principal in the new, original project with Rich Robinson, The Magpie Salute. This rare solo, acoustic set marks one of his only shows to date in 2019.
