Steve & Ben New Album Session

It’s nice to be understood…

Very occasionally, without any prompting, someone writes about your music in a way that you always hoped. Thanks to Danny Neill at Folk Radio UK for a lovely review.

My favourite quote from the review:

Well, the cover images show him to be a heads up, can-do sort of chap. The kind of house guest who wouldn’t mind helping with the washing up.”

Ben Somers Album Launch & Tour

I’m very excited about the launch of my new album ‘Poor Stuart’. With the help of All About PR it’ll be released late August and we’ll be touring it starting at the Didmarton Bluegrass Festival on September 2nd. Along with myself, Evan & Dorian will be the amazing Lena Jonsson from Sweden , joining us on fiddle. I met Lena a few years ago when we shared a bill during a tour she was doing with the wonderful Brittany Haas. If you haven’t checked Lena out then find her new album ‘Places’

Here is the title track from the new album ‘Poor Stuart’
