Ben Harper

Ben Harper is from a musical family and has been surrounded by music his entire life. He currently works behind the scenes and as a teacher for the Mobile Symphony Orchestra. He previously worked in public radio as an announcer, and ran a record store (back when there used to be such a thing) for many years. In addition to being the guitarist and sometimes-flute-player with 2nd Breakfast, Ben has played bass in many jazz and rock bands, and he was the guitarist in the Celtic band Mithril. He majored in Music Education at the University of South Alabama, where he studied flute with his future band-mate, Andra Bohnet.

When Ben returns home at the end of the day, he is greeted by his wife, two children, and two dogs that are not his.
