On tour from the UK, master fiddler, Ben Paley will include Cabot, Vermont on his 12 concert whirlwind tour of the United States!

Ben Paley is a fiddler and singer equally adept at Swedish, Oldtime, Irish and Klezmer traditional styles. Son of the late Tom Paley, was one of the great figures of the American folk revival and an enormous influence on Ben’s musical life.

Ben wrote Swedish Fiddle Music: An Anthology, which has become the standard work on the subject in English. ”The best tune book and recording of Scandinavian fiddling” says Carl Rahkonen. He also found time to play and record with such people The Levellers, The Saw Doctors, Sara Grey, and the great Jeff Warner.
