(4 strings) + (melody) + (rhythm) x (joy). We’re gonna have Ben Carr in the studio with us this Wednesday night! His latest CD, Unyielding, just dropped at the end of December and its fusion of world beat, jazz, prog, folk, and drum magic has been wrapping itself around people like a big-hearted embrace.
In addition to his solo work, he sits in regularly with folks like Sunny Lowdown, The Milkhouse Heaters, Patty Carpenter, and Mo Ambesa. He teaches drums and ukelele too (yay teachers!), does studio session work as a player or knob-twiddler (or both), and more. This dude’s livin’ the music in multiple time signatures.
This Wednesday night at 7:00 on Monsters & Hamsters, broadcast on WOOL-FM 91.5 in these general parts or streaming from wool.fm everywhere else. Open studio during the show at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls if you’d like to come by, or open phone at 802-460-9665 ext 100 if you’d like to call.
