Michael Osborn Band with Daniel Castro

Main Stage

2:00 PM

Describing Daniel Castro as a blues artist doesn’t begin to tell the whole story. A highly accomplished guitarist and singer/songwriter with a strong musical viewpoint grounded in the best blues traditions is more like it. Combine those talents with original blues-based material and you begin to understand Daniel’s strengths as an artist. Well-known for being a dynamic performer who “leaves it all on the stage” night after night, Daniel brings crowds to their feet with his blistering solos, soulful singing, and tight arrangements. Daniel has backed Pee Wee Crayton and Little Ester Phillips and has also recorded and toured with many other artists including legendary Small Faces singer-bassist Ronnie Lane.

Michael Osborn was John Lee Hooker’s lead guitarist for 13 years. After his stint with Hooker, one of Michael’s songs, “Spellbound,” was featured on Hooker’s 1998 GRAMMY Award winner for Best Traditional Blues recording, Don’t Look Back. Michael has also backed, recorded with, or played with such musical luminaries as Robben Ford (Michael has a song credit on Robben’s Blue Moon release), The Charles Ford Band, Charlie Musselwhite, and many more. As a member of Bill Rhoades and the Party Kings, he has taken home seven awards for Best Traditional Blues Band and was inducted into the CBA Hall of Fame.
