London Fiddle Convention 2018

Over the past few years I’ve become a regular member of the London Fiddle Convention. This year along with convention organisers Chris Haigh and Pete Cooper. We were joined by the wonderful young fiddler Tom Moore. Here are some highlights from the concert.

Ben Somers String Band in Norway

Its looking like we’ll be playing a beautiful little festival in Steinkjer ,  North of Trondheim in Norway this June and it got me thinking about the music of Annlaug Borsheim. Here’s a medley of two tunes which will feature on the new studio album. Annlaug, from Norway wrote the second tune ‘Fasiken’, Fasiken is actually a Swedish word for……well you look it up. We filmed this video at La Sonora De Gracia in Barcelona during a tour last year.

The Henhouse Rag – Steve & Ben Somers Country Band

This tune (by me) is the final video from our shoot with Bobby Williams. We’ll be at The Green Note in Camden on June 17th 2017.

Sitting In With The Time-Jumpers

Still one of my proudest and scariest moments to date. Whilst on tour with Seal I managed to catch one of my favourite bands, The Time-Jumpers when we stopped in Nashville. They were an incredibly  nice bunch of people and gracious enough to let me sit in for a couple of tunes.
