We are pleased to announce that Grammy Award winning musician Ben Harper is coming to the Emerald City to support his friend and cousin, Steve Gonzalez. The rally will take place at the Crocodile in downtown Seattle on Sunday, June 24th and will feature an acoustic set by Ben.
Ben is a musician, artist, and activist. Whether it’s through the soul of southern Gospel, 70s funk, blues, reggae, or rock and roll, Ben and his trademark Weissenborn guitar have been stunning audiences with incendiary live performances and timeless songwriting. 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.
Both Ben and Steve grew up in Claremont, California where their grandparents owned a music store – The Folk Music Center and Museum (which is still owned and operated by the Harper family). Ben’s love of music won him over at a young age, while Steve was drawn to his love of language and the law.
