Old time songs and fiddle tunes; jigs and reels from the British Isles; polskas from Sweden; klezmer: all parts of the musical heritage of fiddler Ben Paley, son of the legendary Tom Paley
Ben Paley · 7:00pm
Son of Old-Time legend Tom Paley, fiddler Ben was born in England and partly brought up in North Carolina. He's spent his life exploring the fiddle music of the USA, the British Isles and Scandinavia, as well as playing jazz, blues, klezmer, and whatever else comes along. He's played and recorded with his late father, with Sara Grey and Kieron Means, the Levellers, Jeff Warner, Jim Kweskin, Duck Baker, Bonnie Dobson, B.J. Cole and many others, as well as with his own band the Long Hill Ramblers, as a solo performer, and as a session musician. His recently reprinted book "Swedish Fiddle Music, An Anthology" is widely regarded as the standard work in English.
