We just can’t get enough of Anders Osborne. He’s appeared at this festival more than any other artist and with good reason. His raw, confessional songs, impassioned singing, and fierce guitar work are perfectly suited for the rough and tumble authenticity the festival embodies. Considered one of the top songwriters and guitarists from a city that’s rich in great songwriters and musicians, the Swedish native was irretrievably drawn to New Orleans and has stayed put since landing there as a young man. His records are a must-have for any serious music lover and to see him live is to become a believer. Welcome back, Anders. You are a fine friend!
