An Evening Of The Blues: Ben Harper + Charlie Musselwhite
Following the release of their collaborative album 'Get Up!' (via the legendary Stax Records/Concord Music Group) Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite have announced a one-off 'Evening of the Blues' show in London this July.
In the grand but all-too-rare tradition of full-album artist collaborations, 'Get Up!' featuring Ben Harper with Charlie Musselwhite is a modern blues classic. The release, Harper's 12th studio album, surveys gospel, roots, country and R&B; the marriage's fluid chemistry helping his multi-layered canvas expand as never before.
Recorded down and dirty, fast and live, Get Up! is an old school creation. This kind of musical chemistry demanded the approach. But its attitude, brash, assertive, disarming and vulnerable, is defiantly modern. This is a record Harper has always aspired to make but knew required the essential life experience. Get Up! proves it’s been time well spent.
This event takes place at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Los Angeles-born singer/songwriter whose unique sound is as much rooted in his trademark hollow-neck acoustic Weissenborn guitar as in his urban acoustic ballads.
