Acadiana 365’s Pick of the Day – Louisiana Crossroads presents Anders Osborne
Though Anders Osborne may have been born in Sweden, but it’s apparent through many of his songs that he’s laid lifelong roots in Louisiana. This Thursday and Friday Anders Osborne and his band are bringing the potent mix of dense songwriting, fervent vocals and subtle guitar, which has made them a staple in the sundry New Orleans music scene, to the stage of the Acadiana Center for the Arts for the next installment of Louisiana Crossroads.
This month’s Louisiana Crossroads will be held on Thursday, March 14, and Friday, March 15, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range among $30, $25 and $20 depending on seating and are available online at AcadianaCenterfortheArts.org or at the AcA Box Office.
