Ben Caplan & The Casual Smokers

The Capitol Theatre is proud to present Ben Caplan & The Casual Smokers. A charismatic charmer and a smasher of pianos. A madman and an earnest poet. A strummer of delicate chords and a lover of bent and broken melodies. Ben Caplan is not any one thing. Inspired in part by Eastern European and Jewish folk traditions, Ben Caplan mixes older musical sensibilities with his own soul, straight from his hairy heart.

Originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Ben’s new album, Birds with Broken Wings, explodes with sounds both ancient and modern, with more than 30 musicians and even more instruments, combining acoustic sounds from around the world.

Genres: Folk/Rootssoldout
