Two Noble Kinsmen @ Shakespeare’s Globe

The 6 week run of Shakespeare’s ‘Two Noble Kinsmen’ has finally ended. I was lucky enough to stand in on double bass for several shows and even luckier to get to wear this ‘hip medieval get up’ and tread the boards The music was a lot of fun to play, I’ve been a fan of Eliza Carthy’s playing and music for awhile so it was great to hang out with her and play some of her music.

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’
