Ben Harper

BRANDON WIDDER
8 pm., Sunday November 10 | $39-$75.
 
[ACOUSTIC CATALOG] At 43, Ben Harper is too damn young to be releasing a career retrospective. Last year’s By My Side collected his most sweetly whispered ballads, but it seems premature for the man to start looking backward, especially given that his recent collaborative album with blues-harp legend Charlie Musselwhite, Get Up!, sports some of his finest blues to date. The aggressive latter album is piping hot with the singer-songwriter’s Weissenborn slide guitar and high-tenor howl. This Schnitz performance is a solo endeavor, though, so let’s not kid ourselves: It’s likely going to be a hushed evening featuring songs about shaken faith, heartbreak and, of course, doobies. 

Where: Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
