Ben will play solo on this tour. He is a storytelling songwriter, a raconteur, and a guitarist whose playing style has been described as “exemplary”(Maverick Magazine) and “idiosyncratic”(The Rocking Magpie). He’s been called “one of America’s truest notions of an artist” (Artree-UK) and his concerts are truly unique.
