Ben Caplan and guests
Please give folk musician Ben Caplan from Halifax Nova Scotia a warm welcome as he is revisiting the province of his birth. Let his musicianship and that of his accompanying quintet enchant you. You will love it.
A charismatic charmer and a smasher of pianos. A madman and an earnest poet. A strummer of delicate chords and a lover of bent and broken melodies. Ben Caplan is not any one thing. As he releases his second album, he's already gained a following in more than a dozen countries from Australia to Europe and across North America. It's no surprise. Caplan is simply unforgettable; with his huge beard and unruly mane, he is as visually striking as he is aurally compelling. His rough and textured tones cut through crowded halls; an enormous voice, roaring louder than raucous crowds. The microphone looks almost superfluous. But looks are deceiving; once he has your attention, Caplan can croon smoother than a glass of single malt whisky, pouring beauty into a harsh world.
Doors open at 8 pm, show starts at 8:30 pm. Tickets are available at Brimstone Brewing Company and wwww.ticketscene.ca.
