Harper
 
www.harper.biz

Born in the United Kingdom, Harperís musical journey began early, performing in brass bands playing the trumpet and euphonium. At the age of ten, his family moved half way the world to Perth, Western Australia, and his father introduced Harper to the harp. In Perth, there was a thriving blues and folk scene. The blues had a rawness, an honesty and a passion of the soul which spoke to Harper deeply. Then, like every blues lover, Harper began his journey backwards to discover the deeper roots of the music. "But Harper did not stop his search with the blues. It was a chance meeting with a Hopi "Dan Running Bear" in Colorado, that led him down the path to rediscovering the music of his homeland. Fascinated with the spirituality and culture of the American Natives, he found the same qualities present in the Australian Aborigines of his homeland. On adding the native didgeridoo to his music, Harper says "It is a sound I grew up with, so it seemed natural to add it to my songwriting particularly when the lyrics related to the plight of the Aborigines in Australia. When I added the didgeridoo to the more traditional blues instruments, it worked. The deep woody qualities and its haunting drone seemed to enhance the emotional quality of my stories. The didgeridoo is a spiritual and healing instrument, and it seemed blues music accepted it with open arms."

The session with an interesting mix of blues based numbers featuring harmonica and didgeridoo from his latest album Day By Day. Songs included in the set were Iím Going Home, Does Anybody Really Care, One Day (about George Bush), Give Me the Money, Down to the River and Get Out of This Mess.
