Ben Hamblin - Songs for the Whole Family
Ben Hamblin, a Massachusetts native, lives in Reston, Virginia, and has always loved to sing. He made his first guitar in a junior high woodworking class and that set his musical journey on its way. He is attracted to many musical genres - pop, rock, folk, jazz, classical, standards - and he likes to mix things up when he performs. Since coming to the DC area Ben discovered a group of like-minded enthusiastic music lovers at The Folk Club of Reston/Herndon. He became a Tuesday night open mic regular, a member, and is now its President. He enjoys playing and jamming with different combinations of musicians, offering his guitar skills and tenor voice to others, and asking talented musicians to enhance his songs. Look for him Tuesday nights at The Folk Club in the Amphora Diner Deluxe in Herndon, Virginia. He is a member of the North Shore Drifters, a quartet that plays jazz-style pop standards. We want to thank Ben in teaming with us in developing this one of a kind set for our festival families to enjoy.
