Including Ben Mckee (12:00PM in the Courtyard)
About Ben Mckee:
Inspired by his upbringing in the Appalachian foothills outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the music of singer-songwriter Ben McKee bears the influence of the east coast’s musical diversity blended with the rich traditional vibrations of America’s plains.
After playing in several groups throughout his career, most recently the Billings, Montana-based band Mister Afternoon, the methodology of Ben’s songwriting and performing turned to an approach of intimacy and storytelling. His themes explore human nature through wit and poetry, empowered by a spirited imagination, and expressed with unconditional sincerity.
Cruising the Rocky Mountain region in pursuit of new audiences, Ben is now in the process of recording his debut EP through Smiling Dog Records. Stay in touch for upcoming releases and live music dates.
