Bringing the more traditional music from an artist's birthplace to a larger audience is often a challenging task for musicians, to put it mildly. Infusions of a country's more native sounds are frequently dismissed by critics and audiences alike as a cheap gimmick or simply disrespectful to the music's roots altogether. Thankfully, Peter D. Harper's eclectic blend of affecting soul, blues, and roots, mixed with stylings from his native Australia, is nothing short of enchanting. Backed by his Michigan-based band, Midwest Wind, Harper is rolling through Dinosaur BBQ once again to bring a welcome dash of Australian didgeridoo flavor to some tried-and-true blues.
Peter D. Harper will perform Wednesday, August 13, at Dinosaur BBQ, 99 Court Street. 9:30 p.m. Free. Dinosaurbarbque.com; Harper.biz.
