Benjamin Folke Thomas & his Band

April 17, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£10.00 – £12.00

Enjoy an evening of great music and highly original songs from Swedish singer/songwriter Benjamin Folke Thomas.

Ben’s explosive take on alt-country and country-rock (with emphasis on the rock) has been impressing British audiences since he arrived in London five years ago. Since then he has played venues large and small throughout the UK as well as festival appearances at Glastonbury, Green Man, Larmer Tree and Cropredy among others.

Whether playing solo or fronting his band, Ben is an electrifying performer whose characterful and resonant vocal style is complemented by highly accomplished finger-style guitar. With influences including Warren Zevon, Leonard Cohen and early Dylan’, he is also an inspired and mature songwriter.

Ben recently travelled to Nashville with legendary radio presenter Bob Harris as part of the ‘BBC Introducing’ presence at the 2014 Americanas. “Ben’s instrumental virtuosity, sophisticated songwriting, and powerful passionate vocals add up to Americana at its very best,” says Bob.

Whether you are a long-time country-rock and Americana fan or a newcomer to the genre, Ben’s fervour and musicality will blow you away
