Anders Osborne - "Different Drum" Live at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival

There is something about Anders Osborne’s guitar playing that is utterly purifying. Every note is perfectly placed, at once feral and controlled, and emotion pours from his fingers and through his guitar’s supplicant strings into our very souls. Anders is this festival’s most frequent flier and after all these years, he never rests on his laurels, delivering set after astounding set. The Swedish native found the home of his heart in New Orleans after traversing the globe with his songs and his wanderlust, and now he is considered a native son. His musical influence stands shoulder to shoulder with that city’s mythical giants. Watch the energetic performance of “Different Drum” live from the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Main Stage.

The Glorifying Vines Sisters - "Down By The Riverside" Live at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival

One of our favorite traditions is going from Oh, Hoppy Day (Saturday’s Grand Tasting) to Oh, Happy Day, when Sunday in the park begins with a rousing gospel set. In 2018, The Glorifying Vines Sisters took the stage with their songs of devotion sung in beautiful three-part harmonies. Gospel and the blues are kindred spirits. Both music forms stem from African-American traditions and culture. Gospel often crosses easily into the secular world - whether or not one is a believer, the joy of gospel music is undeniable. And listening to the Vines sisters sing will indeed fill you with joy and light. The Glorifying Vines Sisters are a group endorsed by Music Maker Relief Foundation, a non-profit that keeps Southern music traditions alive by supporting artists so they can perform their music. We’re grateful for them, for the Vines sisters, and for this beautiful day. Watch the inspiring and uplifting performance of “Down By The Riverside” live from the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Main Stage.

RL Boyce & The Hill Country Allstars - "I Don't Need A Woman" Live at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival

R.L. Boyce’s Hill Country Blues is effortlessly transcendent and mesmerizing. Capturing the juke-joint, moonshine fuelled, picnic party life of Como, Mississippi, Boyce takes the listener through Saturday night and over that fine line that separates it from Sunday morning. This is god-fearing music on Mississippi terms. R.L. Boyce has become so highly regarded people see him as the Ravi Shankar of Hill Country music. Hill Country music is loose and free, so much so that it puts both the performer and the listener in a warm, almost meditative state while still groovy enough to demand a good ass shake. Through improvisation, it is designed to heighten your consciousness. You don’t play this sort of music so much as you submit to it. Watch the mesmerizing performance of “I Don't Need A Woman” live from the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Main Stage.
