Posted: August 9, 2021 in News

Our show with the wonderful Ben Caplan in The Glad Cafe on Saturday 13th November is almost sold out.

If you want to snap up one of the last tickets you can do so from the link here

Ben is both the roar of the hurricane and the eye of the storm. He has an uncanny ability to channel both wild abandon and quiet introspection.

His songwriting pulls from many diverse influences but both his music and his lyrics regularly draw from his Jewish heritage. Often mixing biblical imagery and klezmer inflected melodies, Caplan re-appropriates ancient sounds and themes with a decidedly contemporary twist.
