Ben Walker

With a reputation for flawless musicianship, it’s no surprise that BBC Folk Award winner Ben Walker is in demand. Hailed by Total Guitar as one of ‘the best acoustic guitarists in the world right now’, a master of intricate and subtle fingerstyle, he plays like no-one else.

Signed to Rough Trade Records as half of the duo Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker and with more than fifty albums under his belt as a producer of other artists, Ben has been sought out as an arranger and composer from punk to the Proms.

Reviewers have described his work as ‘thoughtful’ (TheGuardian), ‘deft’ (TheTelegraph) and even ‘legendary’ (The Morning Star).
