The next generation of folk music, Benjamin Rogers pushes the boundaries of traditional folk music. Combining fiddle, guitar and mandolin with his contemporary lyrics and unique voice he is creating music that draws you in and wraps around you like a warm blanket.

Benjamin has developed his fiddle style drawing its roots from the East Coast and Old Time but is transformed into his own style.
