Bio

Combining the intimacy of folk and alt-country with the energy of bluegrass, Ben Wilson's sound is a well revised, transatlantic marriage of genres. Thought provoking originals coupled with stylised renditions of traditional folk songs, make for captivating performances from an energetic young songwriter, accompanied by friends on double bass, banjo-mandolin and violin. An ex-pat from Brighton England, a past resident of the USA, and now based in Northern NSW, Ben draws on a broad spectrum of influences and experiences.
