Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons are songster revivalists who perform acoustic blues, field hollers, fiddle & banjo breakdowns, and early jazz that delights audiences in concerts and workshops nationwide. With their unique integration of performance, education and modern-day folklore, the Seattle-based duo redefines the role of a songster in the 21st century. Their American Roots music is inspired by early 20th century American folk, novelty songs and black Americana. They blend the musical stories from the rural American Northwest, African American folklore and connect those lineages to music from around the world.
