 Blues, Jazz & Roots At The Radway Inn Sidmouth

“Excellent guitar playing and excellent artwork” – as quoted by Paul Jones when Ben’s new album ‘Good Times’ featured on his BBC Radio 2 show in March 2015.

Ben Carr is a guitarist from Devon who is passionate about blues, jazz, and roots music. Ben performs regularly as an energetic and engaging solo artist playing slide guitar and building up a big sound using a cajon, drum kick pedal and tambourine. Ben also has a rockin’ band The Hot Rats and a foot stomping duo Ben & Sy’s Stompin’ Blues – both feature on his latest album Good Times.

Elements of blues, jazz, folk and self-penned songs are warmly portrayed through warm and soulful singing. Through his music, Ben celebrates blues heroes such as Bessie Smith, Lead Belly, Big Bill Broonzy, Robert Johnson, and Howlin’ Wolf.

You can also expect to hear music influenced from some of the great crooners of jazz, from Bing Crosby to modern day artists such Tom Waits.

Ben ‘s latest album ‘Good Times’ released in November 2014 features his band The Hot Rats and a New Orleans Horn section.
