As is so often the case with unique artists, it takes another one to fully appreciate them.
Growing up on a farm in the heart of Yorkshire, music has always been central to Ben Welborn's life. With a Grandfather who was a big band drummer, and a Father with a vast musical collection enthusiastically shared with whoever would listen, music was everywhere. However, it was the music of a certain JR Cash that managed that rare feat of stopping a young and energetic Ben in his tracks. Having lived the life and music of Johnny Cash and other country heroes who came before and since, Ben Welburn, aka CASH, has effortlessly recreated the sound, vibe and appeal of the master himself.
DOM AND THE IKOS
Dom Pipkin is best known for his rocking New Orleans piano styles and has been a regular performer in the city since the late 90s. Along with his band The Ikos, he delivers the infectious sounds of the Crescent City - made famous by artists such as Dr John and Fats Domino. Pipkin has worked with a host of artists over the years from Morcheeba and David Byrne to Ray Davies, Shy FX, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Paloma Faith. His trio is made up of Roy Pfeffer of the Big Smoke Family on drums and Nick Pinion on bass, whose credits range from Laura Marling to Tom Jones. Every show "builds to fever pitch and has the audience dancing and clapping".
"When Dom plays the piano magic happens!" - Paloma Faith
