Free Ben Harper performance in Rome

By Valeria Marchetti

If you burn one down with Ben Harper you can do it for free in Rome.

This free concert will be held on April 22 in Rome’s Piazza del Popolo and will air live on Nat Geo Music Channel Online. This means that even if you can't make it to Rome you can still have the Ben Harper experience for free.

Other performances include Relentless7, featuring Jason Mozersky (guitarist), Jordan Richardson (drummer) and Jesse Ingalls (bassist).

They will play songs from their upcoming album entitled White Lies for Dark Times.

Jamming for the environment

The show will celebrate Earth Day and all of the concert’s carbon emissions will be counteracted by planting 1,000 trees in Rome’s Riserva della Valle dell’Aniene park, word fair net claimed this fall.

The project is run through Impatto Zero, an initiative from Italian organization Life Gate that enables individuals and organizations to equalize carbon emissions through tree-planting.

Harper has been always involved in environmental issues. In a 2007 interview, the American singer touched upon what green meant to him.

"I think we’re in the middle of an environmental renaissance, whether we know it or not. You can really intelligibly gauge a renaissance until 10 years after it has happened.

But in the meantime, there’s a lot to do — and there are a lot of people doing some real exciting stuff around the planet."

Speaking about Lifeline, his previous album he said, "When you talk too much about environmentalism, you can become that guy very quickly. But at the same time, you only get one shot to control your reality, and if in controlling your reality, you can make a better reality for the future of the planet, why not?"
