Northern NSW based British singer songwriter, Ben Wilson is a well seasoned performer having played all over Australia. Last year Wilson won a bursary for 'Outstanding Original Music' from the Bangalow Bluegrass Festival, which begun the release of his debut full length album 'Give Me That Hammer'.
The album tackles the conflict of a man torn between two worlds but is also filled with great ambition and drive. Wilson is filling the second half of the year with festival appearances, after touring with a new band, showcasing their contemporary folk-rock sound which borrows heavily from their Bluegrass and old-time roots.
This year Wilson is accompanied by Drums, Bass, Violin, Organ while Wilson switches between Electric and Acoustic Guitar, but Wilson also has a knack for delivering gripping intimate solo performances.
Ben Wilson's contemporary folk-rock originals nod to their Bluegrass and old-time roots, accompanied by violin, drums and double bass, Wilson has performed at festivals all over Australia.
