03.09.14 Is Ben busy in October....

by Howie

Throwing my wife a 10 year anniversary party in the Philadelphia area in October. Was wondering if Ben would want to play a few songs. I would happily pay for the airfare, hotel, transportation and for his time. It will be a small gathering of family and friends at our house. This would be the ultimate gift for my wife. Our wedding song is Forever.

Never hurts to ask.

Thanks,

Howie

From Rolling Stone-

---The duo are already talking of making another album together. Harper said excitedly: "I'd go into the studio tonight."

"I'm ready. I'm so ready," said Musselwhite

---"Harper has also just completed recording an album of duets with his mother, singer-songwriter Ellen Chase-Verdries. The 10-track record, Childhood Home, is all originals written by Harper and Chase-Verdries and will be released on Mother's Day.

"It's produced like early Elvis. Not one thing is plugged in. It's all acoustic," Harper said. "I think they're going to call it ‘Americana,' but it's soul, California, folk rock, American."
