Steel Yourself for Ben Lester
Perhaps you’ve heard S. Carey and M. Perry are streaming a show from the Pablo Center at the Confluence August 6 (free, but y’gotta sign up here) but you should also know we’ll be sharing the stage with Ben Lester. Maybe you’ve seen Ben playing pedal steel with the Long Beds, maybe you’ve heard him on the most recent Bon Iver album, maybe you’ve heard him all over the place and not realized it. He’s an artist in his own right, a journeyman in the best sense, the fishin’est musician I’ve ever toured with, and–I say this after some years of close observation and travel–a man of principle. I love sharing the stage with Ben and can’t wait for you to hear what he plays at the Pablo.
