As a faculty member of the festival, Ben will be leading workshops during the week, and appearing in a series of public performances in the evenings and weekend.

About: Centrum, sponsor of the event, is a gathering place for artists and creative thinkers from around the world, students of all ages and backgrounds, and audiences seeking extraordinary cultural enrichment. Centrum promotes creative experiences that change lives. The week-long Blues workshop is designed to make participants a better musician—and does it ever—but it is so much more. Day and night, you'll hang out, jam and swap tunes with interesting, accomplished, and fun musicians from around the nation.
