Ben Maggs – Singer, Songwriter, Musician
May 26, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| £10
With a live set described as ‘mesmerising’ and a ‘stunning voice’ being talked about all over the UK, multi-award winning Singer Songwriter Ben Maggs is an artist not to be missed – as attested by rapturously appreciative capacity audiences.Beyond the undeniably high quality of his song writing, guitar and vocal performance, Ben Maggs really entertains. Evocative vocals and melodic lyricism, the energetic “nothing held back” visceral nature of his performance and engaging inter-song storytelling, all carried exquisitely by resonant acoustic guitar – you can expect nothing less than the full and free expression of the heart and soul of this talented troubadour.
Ben’s unique style, lyrics and melodies brilliantly reflect life’s journey, infused with the heartbeat of the natural and concrete world, and the many good folk met along the way.
He will be performing songs from his new debut album, intertwined with a patchwork of his other creations – from his EP ‘Let in the Light’ to recently penned songs.
