Ben Harper announces 3-date tour of SA in June

American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Ben Harper, plays an eclectic mix of blues, folk, soul, reggae, and rock and has a reputation of putting one of the best live shows around.

Beginning with his 1994 debut, Welcome To The Cruel World, Harper released a string of eight studio albums over a decade-and-a-half.

This extraordinary run, featuring contributions from the Innocent Criminals, established him as a singularly powerful songwriter and performer with range across multiple genres and an unmatched ability to blend the personal and political.

The accolades poured in – Rolling Stone hailed his “jewels of unique and exquisitely tender rock & roll,” while Entertainment Weekly praised his “casual profundity,” and Billboard said his music “reminds us of the power and beauty of simplicity.”
