Karl Denson and Luther Dickinson to Join Anders Osborne During JazzFest
As previously reported, Anders Osborne will celebrate the release of his new album Black Eye Galaxy with a special late night show during JazzFest. The New Orleans guitarist will host a special CD release show at Republic on May 5, with Tab Benoit’s “Swampland Jam” feat. Johnny Sansone, Waylon Thibodeaux, and Mardi Gras Indians (Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Big Chief Bo Dollis Jr. & Joseph Jr.) opening the night. Osborne has now confirmed that both Karl Denson and Luther Dickinson will sit in during his set.
Denson recently took Osborne on the road as part of his Sticky Fingers tour while Dickinson played a few shows with the New Orleans legend late last year. Osborne will also perform with Bill Kreutzmann, Little Feat’s Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett and Billy Iuso at Republic on April 27.
