Ben named in the Gibson’s TOP 10 Modern Blues Guitarists !

Gibson named Ben one of the Top 10 Modern Blues Guitarists. Here’s what they had to say about him:

“When Stevie Ray Vaughan passed away in 1990, he left a void in the world of young blues musicians. Over the past twenty years we have seen the emergence of many talented blues guitarists.”

“Just like with Derek Trucks, Ben Harper’s style of music span many different genres, with blues being one of the underlying inspirations. Although he’s a multi-instrumentalist, Harper’s signature instrument is playing acoustic slide guitar. Just listen to songs like “Homeless Child,” “Whipping Boy,” and “I Want To Be Ready” for a taste of how Harper incorporates the blues in his music.”
