Ben Winship – Camp Song

Ben Winship is a self-made musician who has carved out a niche for himself behind the potato curtain and under the radar of commercial music. His routine is a constantly shifting mix of performing, recording, engineering and teaching. Mandolin is Ben’s primary ax, but he is also a well respected songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist.
Winship’s version of string band music is an exploration of crossroads; where raw meets refined, original meets traditional, weird meets familiar, organized meets free ranging. The Boston Globe called his sound “A further leap from traditional hill country music.” While Tim O’Brien refers to him as “One of the acoustic music scene’s best writers.”Ben co-founded the Targhee Music Camp with Tom Garnsey in 2005, and we are delighted to have the former camp coordinator teaching workshops this year.
