An Acoustic Evening with Ben Harper at Weill Hall

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.  To get tickets go to the Student Center Box Office or online at
