FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:

“Ben Howard is one of the few artists who is actually better live than on his album. Amazing show!”
Ben Howard was raised in a musical household where folk music held court. Inspired by artists like Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel, and Van Morrison, Ben began playing guitar and writing his own music at an early age, penning tunes in the highly melodic, rootsy style of his folk idols. His 2011 debut LP Every Kingdom was a huge success both in the UK and the US, yielding the hit singles “Old Pine” and “The Wolves” and earning him two Brit Awards in 2013—British Breakthrough Act and British Solo Male Artist.
