7th Annual Concert for Amethyst House

An Evening with Anders Osborne Solo

w/ special guests: Jason Ricci and  Charlie Jesseph

Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 7:30 PM

Doors will open at 7pm for this reserved seating event. VIP tickets include guaranteed seats in the first 3 rows plus a reception prior to the concert. The expected run time is 3 hours.

At one point on his 2019 album, Buddha and The BluesAnders Osborne sings, “Oh, it’s a miracle we still care. Oh, it’s so wonderful we’re still here. We’re still here!”

He’s not going anywhere either…

Osborne’s six-string virtuosity, inventive musicality, and poetic songcraft underpin an ever-expanding three-decade catalog celebrated by fans and critics alike. As a sought-after studio talent, his writing resounds through Keb Mo’s GRAMMY® Award-winning Slow Down, Tim McGraw’s number one “Watch the Wind Blow By,” and covers by Brad Paisley, Jonny Lang, Edwin McCain, Aaron Neville, and more. His output live and in the studio spans working with everyone from Eric Church, Toots and the Maytals, and John Scofield to The Meters, North Mississippi Allstars, and Galactic. His extensive touring history encompasses gigs, collaborations, and performances alongside everyone from Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, and Stanton Moore to The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh and Jackie Greene. Not to mention, he lights up the screen on an episode of the HBO hit Treme. Plus, he has garnered acclaim from USA TodayGuitar PlayerRelixOffbeat, and more.

He also gives back whenever possible via the “Send Me A Friend” foundation and through writing music for New Orleans Children’s Museum. A pair of 2016 albums—Spacedust & Ocean Views and Flowerbox—maintained his prolific output at a record pace. Now, 2019’s Buddha and the Blues references the full scope of the creative and personal duality at the heart of everything this maverick does.

Jason Ricci and Charlie Jesseph will open the show.

Jason Ricci is one of the most popular harmonica players on the planet today. His music is listed in almost every top ten play-list on college, blues, and internet radio. Jason is a “players’ player”—his biggest fans are other musicians, from all genres. Jason Ricci is in the spotlight and on the lips of critics, artists and fans everywhere. Through two plus decades of endless touring, TV appearances, recordings and social media, Jason Ricci’s style of playing is so revolutionary and influential that there exists an entire new generation of players imitating his music, clothes, gear, and even stage presence. Jason has been a constant force for decades in the studio, festivals, club dates and press. Through performing, song writing, teaching, harmonica prowess and activism in the fields of mental health and addiction, it is not an overstatement that this young man is currently changing the world through his music and education. His over blowing harmonica techniques are second to none and his songwriting, while based in deep blues, is contemporary, relevant and boundless.

Inspired by R&B, Soul, and Latin Music, solo singer-songwriter Charlie Jesseph combines smooth vocals with a variety of upbeat rhythmic grooves. His story-filled songs captivate audiences with dynamic emotion and realness. With a guitar in his hands and percussion at his feet, Charlie thrives on creating a great experience for all listeners.

Proceeds will benefit Amethyst House.
