Ben Bedford: Album Release Show
Join us at the Focal Point for the release of Ben Bedfords 5th studio album!
Ben, Darwin the Cat, and The Hermits Spyglass:
Out on the rise, west of the town, where the tall Needlegrass burns to the ground. We sit inside, together apart, and a window of light shines in the dark.
So begins Bens and Darwin the Cats day in the little old farmhouse (The Hermitage) on the edge of the Illinois prairie. And so too begins The Hermits Spyglass, Bens 5th studio album. The recording is a small, quiet musical meandering over earth and under sky with Ben and Darwin at the center of the story. We hear the raggedy star-dogs harmonize in the gloom and feel the frost melt from the Locust branches as the sun rises above the horizon. We smell the early morning coffee as the Larkspur springs and the Buffalo Grass sways. We watch the little falcon dive with flashes of green and purple. We meet Ben and Darwins neighbors in the eastern pasture: Festus the Mule and Sassy the horse. We contemplate the golden green of the March prairie sun and the power of an imminent thunderstorm. We sit peacefully while Darwin swishes his tail and talks to the sparrows through the window as quiet reigns on the green hill. So.Come kids of all ages. Come wonder-seekers and question-askers. Join us. Sit and ponder. See as far as you can see.
The Hermits Spyglass is a solo vocal/guitar album. Come here it in its entirety at The Focal Point.
