Swedish singer-songwriter Benjamin Folke Thomas will be bringing his own take on Americana to The Cellars at Eastney on Sunday.

With a new album to promote, Rogue State Of Mind, Ben is touring the UK accompanied by his band.

Although he is now based back in his native Sweden, Ben is no stranger to England.

He lived in London for many years and built a substantial following, playing numerous gigs as well as making festival appearances at Glastonbury, Green Man, Larmer Tree and Cropredy among others.

Last year, Ben travelled to Nashville with legendary radio presenter Bob Harris as part of a BBC Introducing initiative.

Doors open 7pm, tickets cost £8 advance. Go to thecellars.co.uk or call (023) 9282 6249.
