NEW ROOTS & FOLKLORE PRESENT - BENEDICT BENJAMIN

Playing tonight with his full band, Benedict Benjamin is Ben Rubinstein, formerly of The Mariner's Children and Peggy Sue (Wichita Records). His debut album 'Night Songs' is a collection of timeless compositions recorded in a series of churches, bedrooms and kitchens across London and Kent with producer Dan Blackett (Landshapes, Bella Union). Benjamin is first and foremost a songwriter versed in the classical traditions of the form, capable of crafting both operatic crescendo and lullaby-like stillness shot through with the heartbreaking swoon of Roy Orbison, the soothing harmonies of the Everly Brothers and the honesty of Jeff Tweedy. His songs undercut the dream-like beauty of early 60s pop music with lyrics both frank and poetic. In September 2017 he and his band played the prestigious Green Man Festival. His forthcoming second album will be released in early 2018.
