Ben Caplan for Roots & Roses and Trix01-05-2012
Rugged, raspy, and roaring with charisma, Halifax’s Ben Caplan is to folklore what smoke is to bourbon. Perfectly coupled. Ben’s songwriting is as bold in range as it is in ferocity. Fuelled by a quality of melodrama and powerful lyricism, it’s the romance and the manhood crashing with his voice that gives Caplan a truly innovative and experimental artistry. A sound that bridges the gap between controlled composition and unruly passion. Last week he blew our mind in Eindhoven and we're proud to take care of his Belgian bookings. Today he'll be playing Roots 'n Roses Festival in Lessines and tomorrow he's attending Trix in Antwerp.
