Since beginning his career with The Beatles in the 1960s, Ringo Starr has been one of the world’s brightest musical luminaries. He has enjoyed a successful and dynamic solo career as a singer, songwriter, drummer, and active musical collaborator.
Ben Harper is one of music’s most innovative modern bluesmen and an internationally recognized concert draw. Bolstered by his new band, Relentless7, he is now considered among his generation’s essential voices.
In the Egyptian wing of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Artists Den hosted a once-in-a-lifetime concert pairing music legend Ringo Starr with modern folk-funk master Ben Harper and Relentless7. As an added surprise, singer-songwriter Joan Osborne sang backing vocals on selected songs, including “With a Little Help From My Friends.”
