Gig: Harper – Worthenbury -27 July

Posted on: Tuesday, Jul 17, 2007

You may remember that a few weeks ago we featured a review of the excellent CD – “Day By Day” by Harper. Following on from that review there is an interesting gig at Worthenbury on Friday July 27th following on from their successful festival.

Harper (no first name) is an Australian world music/blues/roots musician who having made his name in his home country has moved to Michigan USA to absorb himself into the blues and native music of that country. By then introducing some of the music of the Aborigine people of his homeland he has started to make a big name for himself in the USA, especially since the release of his new cd “Day By Day”on the prestigious “Blind Pig” label.
Playing harmonica and the digeridoo and with a superb soulful voice, he his backed by his regular USA band of Tyler Mac on guitar, Ralph Reitinger on bass and Marc Dixon on drums.
The gig is the only club date in the UK, his only other appearance being The Maryport Festival.
