Blue-eyed soul-funk purveyor, accomplished multi-instrumentalist, contented family man, acclaimed songwriter and captivating live performer, Eric Lindell returns to the Telluride Blues and Brews stage for the first time since 2007. The California native has made waves since calling New Orleans his home in the late 1990s, where that city’s swampy, funky vibe suits Eric’s American roots music to a T. Along with collaborating with Luther Dickinson and Anson Funderburgh on his latest record, Matters Of The Heart, and releasing a slew of other well-received albums, Eric can sometimes be found keeping company with Ivan Neville, Robert Mercurio, and Stanton Moore in a Crescent City super group they call Dragon Smoke. Welcome back, Mr. Lindell.
