The genre-blending, singer-songwriter and guitarist Ben Harper plays an eclectic mix of folk, blues, hard rock, country, jazz and reggae. Growing up in a musical family, he quickly developed his craft as a singer-songwriter and guitarist, played his first gig at the age of 12 and by his early 20s, he performed live with iconic bluesman Taj Mahal.
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.
Massive, international, sold-out tours, Top 10 debuts in the US, gold and platinum certifications internationally, and a slew of TV appearances cemented Harper's status as a genuine, global star.
Supporting acts to complete the stellar line-up for Ben Harper’s SA tour are The Jack Mantis Band, The Soweto Gospel Choir in Cape Town and Auriol Hays will share the stage with Harper and the choir in Pretoria.
Ben Harper will be performing in Cape Town on 4 June at the Grand Arena, GrandWest and in Pretoria on 6 June at the Sun Arena Time Square in Menlyn.
