You could win a guitar slide signed by Ben Harper, a harmonica with a personalized note from Charlie Musselwhite and a copy of the duo's second collaboration album, No Mercy In This Land (out March 30 on Anti- Records).
Their first collaborative album came out in 2013. Entitled Get Up!, it debuted at number one on Billboard's Blues Albums chart and won a Grammy for Best Blues Album, plus the pair spent plenty of time supporting it on the road, so of course a sequel was coming. The two performers speak highly of one another.
“Charlie Musselwhite is that very rare and hallowed place where blues past, present and future collide,” says Harper about his collaborator and friend. “He transforms notes into emotions that feel both hauntingly familiar and brand new, as if hearing them for the first time every time. He is a living legend whose harmonica playing should be beamed into outer space to search for other life forms.”
“On stage or in the studio, working with Ben Harper holds the same excitement I experienced working with Chicago blues legends back in the day,” says Charlie. “I think it is safe to say that Ben has reinvented the blues in a great way: playing modern while preserving the feel. I am honoured and privileged to be a participant in this project.”
