Friday Lunch: Ben Walker

Part of Friday Lunch

With a passion for putting old jewels in new settings, this acoustic guitarist has been called one of the best in the world by Total Guitar magazine.

In a free lunchtime gig, the versatile composer and celebrated instrumentalist brings us his characteristically warm, whimsical and virtuosic solo set.

Walker is behind six critically acclaimed albums and a BBC Folk Award as a duo with Josienne Clarke, and more than 50 records as a producer of other artists.

His critically acclaimed first solo album, Echo, was released in July 2019.

A collection of original pieces, traditional songs and poems set to music, the album finds the past in the present, and reflects songs and stories down the ages.

Ambitious, distinctive and brilliantly achieved. *****
stunning debut
