We welcome back Australian-bred singer/songwriter Peter Harper to the Blackhawk Jazz & Blues Concert Stage. With a combination of fiery blues harp skills, masterful blending of the aboriginal didgeridoo, along with a powerful, soulful voice - it's clear to see why Harper and his band are among the audience favorites at the Blackhawk concerts. Harper performs at a non-stop list of concert venues and festivals all across North America, Canada, the UK, Europe and Asia - showing his love of bringing his original tunes to the listener. Peter is joined onstage by his talented backing band, consisting of - Angelo Santelli - slide guitar/dobro; Derek Johnson - bass guitar/djembe; and David Zwolinski on drums. Chip Eagle of Blues Revue/Blues Wax says of Harper..."Harper is the most exciting act on the live scene today." He has won countless awards, including "Best Male Vocalist," "Song of the Year," "Band of the Year," "Harmonica Player of the Year," and "Acoustic Artist of the Year" in his native Australia. Harper's last CD "Stand Together" (Blind Pig Records) reached number 10 on the Billboard & The National Blues/Roots charts, and number 2 on the XM/Sirius Bluesville Charts. "Stand Together" has received rave reviews world wide and was nominated for "Most Outstanding Recording" by the 2011 Detroit Music Awards. Harper and Midwest Kind were also listed in the "Top Concerts of 2011" for the City of Chicago.
