Anders Osborne was born in Sweden, but the sound and spirit of New Orleans runs through his veins. He’s currently in the midst of a northeast tour with his band – guitarist Eric McFadden, bassist Carl Dufrene and drummer Eric Bolivar – and they made a stop in Lake Placid earlier this month, wrapping up the city’s summer-long Songs at Mirror Lake Music Series in Mid’s Park. Battling a far from ideal sound mix, Osborne & Co. plowed through two sets of bayou blues and more.
Coming up this weekend, the Anders Osborne Band is headlining Saturday’s line-up (August 20) of the 24th annual Chenango Blues Fest at the Chenango County Fairgrounds in Norwich, where they’ll share the stage with Canned Heat, Curtis Salgado, Duke Robillard, Carolyn Wonderland Band, Noah Wotherspoon, Southern Avenue, Vanessa Collier Band and Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons. Saturday’s fest starts at 12noon and tickets are $25 in advance; $35 at the door.
