HARPER AND MIDWEST KIND BRING WORLD BLUES & ROOTS MUSIC FROM DETROIT, USA !
An amalgamation of blues, soul and world music, Aussie Expat singer/ songwriter "Peter D. Harper" (now based in Detroit) creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica, and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. Harper possesses a strong, resonant voice and a deep, almost mystical approach to music that some might say has evolved into its own genre. Harper calls it “World Blues” -- a rich musical stew of ‘50s rhythm and blues, a ‘60s message of love and unity, and ‘70s funky soul, stirred up with masterful harmonica and the deep, woody, percussive tones of the didgeridoo, served up in a feast of timeless mystery. Harper has received an amazing 14 x Blues/ World Music awards (including a Gold Record) in the USA, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.
