The singer-songwriter Ben Harper has been on the scene since the early ‘90s, but has more recently been digging deeper into the blues with the legendary harpman Charlie Musselwhite.  We’ll talk with Ben about the musical journey from his family’s music store to what he calls his “graduation” album.  Then an in-studio conversation with a guitarist who has played with Sun Ra and now plays banjo with Preservation Hall, New Orleans’ own Carl LeBlanc.
