Tuesday May 18 marks the release of my new CD "Stand Together" through Blind Pig Records. It features Marc Dixon (drums/ percussion) and Chris Wiley Smith (Bass) from my touring band "Midwest Kind" with specials guests: Gregg Leonard on electric guitar and Chris Du Nord on acoustic guitar and Kurt Wolak on piano, hammond organ and wurlitzer. We are all really excited about this new release. I feel its the best work I've done to date.
On a dramatic note my band and I were involved in an accident yesterday, Monday May 17, as we drove down Highway 86 south in North Carolina heading to Florida. Another vehicle spinning out of control in torrential rain hit us hard on the passenger side of our van. Everyone is OK- just a little shaken. The female driver of the other car is also OK. Our van sustained damage to all panels on the passenger side, but is still drivable. The middle door barely opens but we are still able to continue with our tour. We have arrived in Gulf Breeze, Florida and will be able to finish our May / June dates. Once we get back to Michigan, the van will be taken in for extensive repairs.
Hope to see you out on the road this Spring and summer,
Harper & Midwest Kind
