Anders Osborne | "Big Talk" Live at Blues & Brews

From the moment the Swedish native put down roots in New Orleans after traveling the world, he has become an irreplaceable part of that city’s musical landscape. Profoundly confessional songwriting, a voice that summons forth and conquers demons, and guitar work that pierces the soul, Anders’ work is incomparable. We’ve had him play this festival more than any other artist and with good reason. His authenticity and dedication to the blues form, which he fuses with rock ferocity and his unflinching lyricism, is the gold standard of modern blues music. Watch this high energy live rendition of "Big Talk" from the 2017 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.

Anders Osborne | "Sentimental Times" Live at Blues & Brews

“This song was written for the Peace record recorded at Dockside Studios back in 2013. The co-producer and engineer Warren Riker was a big part of that record. The song was first intended to be written about missing my dear departed mother, but I switched gear a little bit and made it about feeling sentimental. Festival Director Steve Gumble and his crew at Blues & Brews have always treated me and my bands like family. Love em!” Watch this stunning live rendition of "Sentimental Times" from the 2017 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.

The Blind Boys of Alabama | "Amazing Grace" Live at Blues & Brews

Testify! Hailed as "gospel titans" by Rolling Stone, The Blind Boys of Alabama first rose to fame in the segregated south with their thrilling vocal harmonies and roof-raising live show. Originally sprung from the halls of the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the 1930s when they were just kids, Jimmy Carter was one of the original members and is still performing today. They toured and raised their voices as part of America’s Civil Rights Movement. At this stage in their impossibly long and remarkable 70+ year career, the release and tour of the new GRAMMY-nominated album, Almost Home, can’t help but feel like their swan song, or like the culmination of their long journey. Watch this stunning rendition of the timeless song "Amazing Grace" performed live at the 2017 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.

Samantha Fish | "Nearer To You" Live at Blues & Brews

When Samantha Fish first played this festival in 2016, she won our hearts in a huge way. One song in, she kicked off her red high heels (“I’m high enough without these”), and absolutely electrified the afternoon crowd with her sizzling guitar work, soaring vocals and a red-hot band that knew no other gear than overdrive. It was nothing short of amazing and we knew without a doubt we had to invite her back. Watch Samantha's return to the mountains with a performance of "Nearer To You" of her 2017 release, "Chills & Fever", that starts out slow and soulful but gradually builds into a full-blown, masterful and fierce ending.
