Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite Combine Blues and Roots For Australian Tour

Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite together will deliver one of the most dynamic shows Australia will see in 2018.

74 year old Blues legend Charlie Musselwhite was the inspiration for Dan Ackroyd’s Elwood Blues character in The Blues Brothers movie.

“Charlie Musselwhite is that very rare and hallowed place where blues past, present and future collide,” says Ben. “He transforms notes into emotions that feel both hauntingly familiar and brand new, as if hearing them for the first time every time. He is a living legend whose harmonica playing should be beamed into outer space to search for other life forms.”

Musselwhite recorded his first album ‘Stand Back! Here Comes Charley Musselwhite’s Southside Band in 1966.

“On stage or in the studio – working with Ben Harper holds the same excitement I experienced working with Chicago blues legends back in the day,” says Charlie. “I think it is safe to say that Ben has reinvented the Blues in a great way: playing modern while preserving the feel. I am honoured and privileged to be a participant in this project.”

Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite (we aren’t sure when Charley became Charlie) released their second album ‘No Mercy In This Land’ on March 30, 2018.

Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite will tour Australia for Live Nation.
