Charlie Musselwhite is more than a great harmonica player—he's a consummate Chicago bluesman with roots that stretch to Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker and the giants of the genre. Charlie released his first album in 1966 and has been at it ever since. Although long revered among blues aficionados—Musselwhite was the model for the Blues Brothers parody of the briefcase-toting harp player—he also enjoys wider appeal as a solo performer and an accompanist for a diverse lineup of rock, pop, gospel and soul artists.Now 72 years old, Charlie Musselwhite shows no signs of slowing down. His most recent albums have been among his finest, demonstrating his talents as a bandleader and musical curator. Energized and in fine voice, he remains true to his roots while continuing to evolve and expand the boundaries of his art. Look for lots more to come from Charlie Musselwhite.Benjamin Chase Harper is an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Harper plays an eclectic mix of blues, folk, soul, reggae and rock music and is known for his guitar-playing skills, vocals, live performances, and activism.
