Oxjam Beeston Takeover 2017, 13:30–14:00 Ben Mark Smith at Pottle of Blues
About Ben Mark Smith:
Ben Smith is an acoustic singer-songwriter from the UK. Ben combines beautiful finger picked melodies with tales of family, friends and loss, often bringing his audience to tears (in a positive way), but always leaving them entertained.
During his travels Ben has performed at an eclectic range of events, festivals such as Kimberley jam and Dot to Dot, in an all guitar orchestra alongside acclaimed guitarist Adrian Utley (Portishead) and at many a charity gig.
No matter the size of the gig, Ben brings a passionate and authentic feel to every performance, connecting with his crowd through the words in his songs (and the terrible jokes in-between).
