Acclaimed songwriters Ben Bedford
& Kirsty McGee
present an intimate & memorable live show with tales from both sides of the Atlantic.
Peddling her skewed but romantic ‘hobopop’ music, with a voice that sounds like honey and smoke, UK songwriter Kirsty is celebrating the October release of her 8th album The Deafening Sound of Stars. She has collected songs from the Mojave desert to arctic Norway, her song Sandman appearing in Danny Boyle’s film Trance (2013).
Hailing from Illinois, for 12 years Ben has toured his vivid, stark tales across America, Europe and beyond. His soft-voiced poetry and captivating guitar work has led to him being compared to such luminaries as Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan and John Prine. Last year, his highly acclaimed 5th album The Hermit's Spyglass was released and he was named one of the six Kerrville New Folk winners at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas.
