Red Lion Folk Club

Wednesday March 4th

Ben Walker

Ben has recently been hailed as ‘one of the best acoustic guitarists in the world right now’ by Total Guitar magazine. From rural Worcestershire, he is inspired by finding the past in the present, by the languages and lived experience of ordinary people and their names, songs and stories that reflect each other down the ages. A versatile composer as well as a celebrated instrumentalist, his passion is putting old jewels in new settings. His first full solo album ‘Echo’ was released in July 2019 and has been given a rapturous welcome by critics-Songlines Magazine gave it a coveted five star review, calling it ‘ambitious, distinctive and brilliantly achieved’. Moreover, those who saw Ben at the club last  year will not forget his delightful and entertaining commentary between pieces.
