Telluride Blues and Brews returns to the Sheridan Opera House for its annual Juke Joints.
Anders Osborne, Sunday, Sept. 18, 10 p.m.
Rich and glorious …Osborne wields a guitar with the precision of a surgeon and the ardor of a lover. Possessing a voice that rises out of the darkness to the light of a soulful, tremulous wail, he is a consummate shaman, bending successive moments to suit his majestic purposes. Osborne seeks an epic quality to much of his music, crafting layer upon layer of hugely scaled soundscapes. Never lazily derivative, every slashing guitar figure, every cry of a lyric, seems to come from an authentic place.
