Combining fiddle, guitar and mandolin with his contemporary lyrics and unique voice he is creating music that draws you in and wraps around you like a warm blanket.

Benjamin has had the privilege of sharing the stage with artists such as Ian Bell, Bryan Pickell, Shane Cook, Ben Caplan and Coco Love Alcorn. In August 2014 Benjamin was featured as one of the Youth Discoveries winners at the prestigious Summerfolk Festival in Owen Sound and was a recent Folk Music Ontario “Young Performer of the Year” nominee. He has developed his fiddle style drawing from East Coast and Old Time traditions, transforming it into his own style.
Benjamin’s EP titled Wayfarer is a blend of driving fiddle and warm lyrical songs.
