Anthony Bourdain


Ben Van Winkle

July 21-28

Ben Van Winkle

He writes songs about the human experience: "To try to relate to people. From mundane things that we all experience, to the supernatural things we all imagine."

"I sing about things in a personal way. I try to express my self truly and honestly and embrace my vulnerability and awkwardness, which feels surprisingly like acting."

From a review by Jim Fuller PHD:

"Ben accompanies himself on cello in a unique style. Furiously bowing, strumming, plucking, thumping, the instrument, he exhibits everything from metal rock lead man to sensitive naïve ingénue in both his playing and singing."

"He is truly a polymath – composer, lyricist, singer, cellist, guitarist, dancer(!) —  and, perhaps, even the word genius applies here!"

"It’s hard for me to express my appreciation for the enormity of his talent, and I hope never to miss one of his performances!"
