I am Ben Gorman and I’m going to take you on a journey. Many of you may think folk and think of your grandfather sitting on the front porch of his farm hitting the top of his knee while his dad played the banjo. Don’t get me wrong, that stuff is great, but in this day and age, no young audience is really interested in that. Folk is music for the people. It is honest music, and today can be done incredibly creatively. When playing acoustic instruments, there is nothing to hide behind. I am here to show you what folk has become and can be. While some of it may be electric and nearing the Alt-Country genre, there will be others that will be bare with nothing but a singer and a single instrument.
I hope you like what I show you.
