Ben J. Carter

After initially honing his skills busking the city streets of Melbourne, guitarist and songwriter Ben J. Carter moved on to playing his unique brand of acoustic blues & roots in venues and festivals across Victoria. Ben`s one man band approach, consisting of finger-picking guitar and foot stomp, goes from soaring slide guitar and blues hollers to folk song ballads.

His reinterpretation of old time country blues aims to pay tribute to iconic bluesman of a bygone era such as Skip James, Fred Mcdowell and Robert Johnson, as well as providing a swag of original folk songs.
