EAGLE — Optimum Events and Eagle Ranch merchants announced the addition of roots rocker and guitarist Anders Osborne to the inaugural Septemberfest’s free musical lineup.
Septemberfest is a two-day music and street party being held in Eagle Ranch Village on Friday, Sept. 22, and Saturday, Sept. 23. Osborne will headline Saturday’s free concert that also includes reggae roots and folk rock with Bonfire Dub.
Music gets underway at 4:30 p.m. and Osborn is scheduled to take the stage at 8:30 p.m. Friday’s free musical lineup will be headlined by Fruition on Sept. 22.
A powerful live performer, Osborne has won over fans through non-stop touring and collaborative sessions with the North Mississippi Allstars, Southern Soul Assembly, Toots & The Maytals, Stanton Moore, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Keb’ Mo’, The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh, Jackie Greene and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe.
Guitar Player magazine calls Osborne “the poet laureate of Louisiana’s fertile roots music scene,” and USA Today touts Osborne’s “fiery anthems and tumultuous confessional songs punctuated with raw, inspired guitar.”
Osborne’s latest release, “Flower Box” (2016), was recorded in his hometown of New Orleans. “Flowerbox” is a heavier, guitar-driven follow-up to the acclaimed “Spacedust & Ocean Views.”
