Contemporary folk-rock singer-songwriter Ben Caplan has been confirmed for a live show at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC).

Caplan’s extensive tour, which brings him to PAC on Thursday, November 11, marks the 10th anniversary of his first album release and will follow hot on the heels of ‘Recollection’ – a collection of stripped back re-interpretations of songs from his back catalogue released this October.

PAC manager James Duffy said: “I saw Ben perform at Cambridge Folk Festival in 2019 and was blown away, like the rest of the audience, with his performance.

“He has a fantastic stage presence and mixes a wonderful blend of musical styles from folk to gypsy through to rock – imagine the love child of Tom Waits and Gogol Bordello and you are getting somewhere close.”

Tickets for Ben Caplan (support by Gabrielle Papillon) are £12 at www.pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk or £14 on the door.
