Ben Walker was recently hailed as ‘one of the best acoustic guitarists in the world’ by Total Guitar magazine. A BBC Folk Award winner, he has a passion for putting old jewels in new settings; for fusing traditional and contemporary music and for playing it like no-one else.
Building on his recent residency at Cecil Sharp House, Ben has been developing a solo repertoire which is equal parts his characteristically virtuosic playing and gently whimsical history lesson.
He’s keen to share some of the lost treasures of our folk heritage alongside his compelling original compositions. This will be a unique set, enjoyable for young and old.
With six critically acclaimed albums with singer/songwriter Josienne Clarke and more than fifty as a producer of other artists, this multi- instrumentalist is sought out as an arranger and composer from punk to Proms.
His music has been described as
— Morning Star
Ben’s first solo album Echo will be released in May 2019.
