Festival audiences better hold onto their seats and prepare to enjoy mesmerizing and spell-binding entertainment wh
en the award winning, multi-talented one-man-band maestro, Ben Prestage, takes the stage! His performance features a cigar box guitar (made by Memphian and one-man-band John Lowe), which has stereo guitar, and bass strings that can be played independently or at the same time. Then Ben plays a series of four-foot pedals that can be manipulated by the heels and toes of both feet to play a drum kit. The final result is Ben playing guitar, bass, and drums while singing his own brand of Blues that leaves bottles empty and dance floors full where ever his music takes him!
Ben Prestage has performed at some the world’s largest Blues Festivals across the US, Canada, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. He has been nominated for a Blues Music Award, an Independent Music Award, and won a Songwriters’ Showcase of America Award for most unique performer. His latest live double-album, Live at Will’s Pub, features this award winning artist on vocals, guitar, dobro, lap-steel, banjo, fiddle and harmonica. With over 20 songs ranging from Delta Blues, Juke Joint Blues, Americana, Finger-style guitar, and original songs, there is something for every lover of American Roots music.
