Ben Walker was recently hailed as one of the best acoustic guitarists in the world by Total Guitar magazine. A BBC Folk Award winner, a versatile producer as well as a celebrated instrumentalist, he has a passion for putting old jewels in new settings, for bringing together traditional and contemporary music and for playing it like no-one else.
With six critically acclaimed albums as a duo with singer/songwriter Josienne Clarke and more than fifty as a producer of other artists, Bens signature style as a composer and arranger has been sought after from punk to Proms. His music has been described as thoughtful ( Guardian ), deft ( Telegraph ) and even legendary ( Morning Star ) and obscenely good ( Fatea ).
His first solo EP The Fox on the Downs was released in 2018, showcasing his mastery of his instrument. Reviewers pronounced it jaw-dropping ( Folk Radio UK ), and called for a solo album soon to follow.
Ben has been developing a repertoire which is in equal part his characteristically virtuosic playing and a gently whimsical history lesson. Hes keen to share some lost treasures of our folk heritage alongside his compelling original compositions in this intimate instrumental set.
