Winnipeg Folk Festival presents Ben Caplan & The Casual Smokers

Mad­cap east coast show­man Ben Caplan makes his Win­nipeg return, bring­ing along his won­der­ful band the Casu­al Smok­ers along for the ride at the Wes End Cul­tur­al Cen­tre on Sat­ur­day, April 6th.

A charis­mat­ic charmer inspired in part by East­ern Euro­pean and Jew­ish folk tra­di­tions, Ben Caplan mix­es old­er musi­cal sen­si­bil­i­ties with his own soul, straight from his hairy heart. Lyri­cal­ly, you’ve not heard the like before. Often edgy and dark, Caplan holds a mir­ror up to show us our nasty bits, singing about the ugli­ness and show­ing us that this dark­ness is the root of the sublime.

Con­su­mate per­former Ben Caplan makes his way back to Win­nipeg on Sat­ur­day, April 6th at the West End Cul­tur­al Cen­tre. Tick­ets are on sale now for $25 plus fees, avail­able through Tick­et­mas­ter, the West End and The Win­nipeg Folk Fes­ti­val Office.
