Ben Carr

Multi-instrumentalist Ben Carr is a Southern Vermont based musician and educator.  He approach to the 'ukulele is an unique one -- using intricate strum patterns, fingerpicking, percussive tones, looped beats/riffs, and harmonic textures. His is not a run of the mill strum and sing performance as he enjoys pushing the boundaries of what the four string axe can do. Ben fuses traditional techniques and classical styles to modern songwriting; and thrives on taking the instrument to places that are not commonly explored. His original compositions draw upon many influences – classical, jazz, rock and reggae – combined into a stylish sound of toe tapping rhythms and hum along melodies which take the listener on musical journeys of sonic adventures, tension, and release.
