September is here and we are just about through the summer and the festival season. We had a blast out on the road this summer! We performed in MI, PA, IN, IL, IA, SD, NE, ID, OR, WA, CA, CO, MN, Ontario and Manitoba, Canada, TN, NC and SC and drove through all the states in between. Lots of driving but stunning views from the road.
We are launching our GO FUND ME" campaign for "Harper and Midwest Kind's new CD" gofund.me/peterdharper

Our aim is to raise $10 000 to cover the recording studio, artwork, CD pressing and publicity costs. This will be the first studio CD in five years, so its well overdue. My band and I have been road testing most of the new songs over the summer and the feedback has been great. Some of the new tunes feature my new didgeridoo in C with the beautiful Dolphin artwork (aptly named Heather) . She sounds amazing! The Official launch date is Saturday September 19th . The GO FUND ME page is up and running!!!!. For those who wish to get involved there are loads of goodies to choose from. You have several choices: a pre release signed copy of the new CD and a signed poster or a Tee Shirt or all three. Maybe a house concert or harp/didgeridoo lesson in your own home as well! Bobbi and I could also bring "Australian Didge-ucation" to your local school or library. We certainly intend to give something back for your amazing support.
Our July trip to Colorado was a lot of fun. Bobbi and I presented "Australian Didge-ucation" at Five different libraries. We had some very big crowds of kids and their parents. Our Colorado club dates at Still Cellars, Navajo Hogans and The Little Bear Saloon were great. Lots of old friends turned up. Good to see our old buddy Lloyd Hoops back at The Bear!!! We had shows in Michigan at The How Bazare Festival, Roots on the River and the Michigan Theater. We drove all the way up to Beausejour , Manitoba, Canada for the Great Woods Festival, Concerts in the Parks in Thunderbay, Ontario and The Boundary Waters Blues Festival in Ely, Minnesota. Lots and lots of miles but well worth it.
Hope to see you all out on the road this Fall!
Thanks and Peace,
Harper and Midwest Kind
