Le retour de Ben Harper aux vieilles charrues Considéré “comme l’un des artistes essentiels de la scène mondiale”, le californien Ben Harper et sa “musique subtile” rock, condensé de folk et de gospel, devrait renouer à Carhaix avec l’engouement suscité lors de sa dernière prestation en 2001 lorsqu’il avait chanté drapé dans un drapeau breton sur la grande scène. Ben Harper et son groupe The Innocent Criminals ont sorti 5 albums depuis 2001.

Ben Harper : “En bretagne, les concerts sont extras, les gens sont extras. Tout sort de l’ordinaire. J’ai pu visiter un peu la région, la côte, j’ai vu les menhirs, les vieilles pierres. C’est splendide quand on prend le temps de la découvrir, ça ma beaucoup plu.”[/lang_fr]
