An Acoustic Evening with Ben Harper

Opening act: Luke Spehar

Organizers of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal are glad to announce a new, highly-anticipated concert as part of the Jazz All-Year Round series presented by TD: An Acoustic Evening with Ben Harper at the Maison symphonique de Montréal, on October 1 at 8 p.m. It's a special surprise announcement, since the singer-guitarist is performing in an acoustic format on this concert tour-and best of all, here in Montreal, he'll be playing in a new venue that has amazed audiences with its brilliant acoustics! Furthermore, given the special relationship between Mr. Harper and his Festival fans, we can probably expect a long, hit-filled show! Tickets for this concert go on sale Friday at noon.

Ben Harper is a musician, artist, and activist. Whether it's through the soul of southern Gospel, 70s funk, blues, reggae, or straightforward rock and roll, Harper and his trademark Weissenborn guitar have been stunning audiences with incendiary live performances and timeless songwriting. Harper continues to innovate his craft as a songwriter, performer, and producer. He has released 10 acclaimed studio albums since 1994-including Give Till It's Gone, which debuted at No. 15 on The Billboard 200 in 2011 and was hailed by Rolling Stone as "his most searingly personal album"-and three live records. These releases, combined with an unceasing commitment to international touring, have helped Harper grow a fan base that now spans several continents.
