    Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons

    Folk-Blues

    After meeting at the crossroads of blues and folk music in the Pacific Northwest, Ben Hunter and Joe Seamons established themselves as a duo after their first year at the Pt. Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival in 2012. Delving deeper into their shared love of traditional and communal American musical styles, they developed their sound by adapting the arrangements of luminaries such as Blind Willie McTell to their main instruments: fiddle and banjo. 

    The next year at Pt. Townsend, Dom Flemons (formerly of the Carolina Chocolate Drops) caught their act, and invited them to North Carolina to form a new trio. In the spring of 2013, they recorded an album with Flemons and began touring across the South. Joe and Ben's duo sound matured as they worked with Dom and explored the cultures that spawned the music they had come to love. Now, as they prepare to release their own album of blues, rags, folk songs and fiddle tunes, Joe and Ben have begun to fuse the gritty hollers of the south with the ethos of their home in the Pacific Northwest. Their debut album was released November 14, 2014.
