Don’t Miss Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals 10/15 at Mystic Lake


Grammy-winning musicians Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals are coming to the Mystic Showroom with special guest The Jack Moves at 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15.

Ben Harper was raised in a hub of activists, poets, artists and great musicians such as Leonard Cohen, Jackson Browne and Taj Mahal. His music and career embodies that musical brilliance, open-mindedness, lyrical honesty and abiding social activism of the time.

With over 15 million records sold worldwide, the career of this award-winning musician, producer, activist and record label founder spans decades. Harper has been established as a singularly powerful songwriter and performer with range across multiple genres. He has a rare ability to blend the personal and political.

Harper teamed up with Charlie Musselwhite in 2013 to create “Get Up!” which won a Grammy for Best Blues Album and the Grammy-nominated “No Mercy in This Land,” which won the Blues Foundation Best Blues Song of the Year.

Harper’s credits as a producer illustrate his musical curiosity and include an impressive diversity including Tom Freud’s “Collapsible Plans,” Grace Woodroofe’s “Always Want,” Natalie Maines’ “Mother” and Mavis Staples’ “We Get By.” For many of these artists, Harper not only produced the music but also helped find a label to release it.

Harper broke more new ground in 2020 with the release of his first ever instrumental record “Winter Is for Lovers.” Unfolding entirely without words, the record is a profoundly emotional story told exclusively through the nuance of sound. 

Jack Moves will be opening the show so get there on time.
