Ben Walker [Acoustic Guitar]
Ben Walker was recently hailed as one of ‘the best acoustic guitarists in the world right now’ by Total Guitar magazine. A versatile composer as well as a celebrated instrumentalist, his passion is putting old jewels in new settings. After six critically acclaimed albums and a BBC Folk Award as a duo with Josienne Clarke, and more than fifty records as a producer of other artists, Ben Walker’s signature style has been sought out from punk to Proms, from Rough Trade to the Royal Shakespeare Company.Ben’s first solo album, Echo , was released in July 2019; a collection of original pieces, traditional songs and poems set to music, critics have given it a rapturous reception. In between producing and playing with other leading artists, Ben is thoroughly enjoying bringing his characteristically warm, whimsical and virtuosic solo set to folk audiences in the UK and Europe throughout 2019. He is inspired by finding the past in the present, by the languages and lived experience of ordinary people and the names, songs and stories that reflect each other down the ages.
