John C. Campbell Folk School - Benjamin Hunter with House Band- at Open House

John C. Campbell Community Tuesday

Benjamin Hunter with House Band

Reality has offered a fertile canvas for violinist, storyteller, educator and community enterpriser Benjamin Hunter's endeavoring mind. Cross pollinating multiple artistic disciplines for more than a decade, the Seattle based polymath and multi-instrumentalist has dedicated his life to transforming the world's stale status quo into a vibrant, inclusive, communal, and compassionate society. Benjamin is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, composer, community activist, social entrepreneur, and educator. Benjamin's work explores the intersections of music & art, community, policy, and culture.

In 2016, his America roots duo with Joe Seamons took first place in the International Blues Competition. In 2018, Benjamin composed the music for the critically acclaimed production, Black Bois. With his primary instrument the violin, he is as comfortable playing classical as he is blues and jazz. City Arts Magazine wrote, "The music he plays not only spans an array of genres but a huge swath of history." Living Blues magazine wrote, "An unbridled freedom and genre emancipation is evident in Ben Hunter's music, yet the deep blues are a cornerstone of his style".benjaminhuntermusic.com
