HARPER & MIDWEST KIND TO PERFORM AT MANGIA MANGIA!
Winning the 2014 Detroit Music Award for 'Most Outstanding Vocalist' is just one of many awards this Australian World Blues & Roots artist Peter Harper has won. Harper and his talented Detroit based backing band 'Midwest Kind' will hit the stage at our March concert series - and we are honored he can include us in his busy national touring schedule.
This Brit born Aussie raised performer is a challenge to categorize musically. He brings his audience a mix of blues, soul and world fusion presented with an unmistakeable passion for entertaining, a deeply soulful voice that comes through with authenticity and heartfelt emotion, fiery blues harp skills, as well as incorporating the aboriginal didgeridoo to the mix with complete ease.
Harper has been nominated for so many awards - it would fill an entire page! Not many blues artists have the distinction of receiving 14 Blues Awards in FOUR different countries - and FIVE nominations for the 2014 Detroit Music Awards....impressive, to say the least!
Despite all the accolades this performer has received - he remains a warm and humorous entertainer...often engaging the audience with his witty banter. Harper and his band leave you feeling like you just made a 'trip around the world' - from the blues clubs of Chicago - to the Outback of Australia - it's a musical journey you do not want to miss. Peter is joined by Mike Howe on acoustic guitar, James Norris on bass, and Cam Lewis on percussion.
