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.
