Description

Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons are songster revivalists who perform field hollers, fiddle & banjo breakdowns, and early jazz in concerts and workshops nationwide. For five years, their tours have extended their work as teachers and community organizers in their home of Seattle, Washington. With their unique integration of performance, education and modern-day folklore, this duo redefines the role of a songster for the 21st century. In 2016, they earned 1st place in the International Blues Challenge’s solo/duo category. In July, they will release a new album with harmonica master Phil Wiggins entitled “Black & Tan Ball.”

“Convivial, relaxed roots music like this seems hyper-relevant… especially when it is played by a multi-racial trio at a venue that celebrates historical black-and-tan clubs, which ‘offered a haven for people of all races in an era when segregation dictated social boundaries.’ A Black & Tan Ball is righteous stuff.”  - Songlines magazine
