Immersed in the folk scene from an early age, Ben is well-versed in the folk traditions of England, and of his home county of Devon. As a solo performer, Ben reworks and reimagines these traditional forms for a contemporary audience to speak to our modern society.
Singing both traditional songs still relevant to our lives and original songs written to address the challenges we face in our society today, Ben accompanies himself on the fiddle, the melodeon, concertina and bouzouki.
