00158Bedford_Ben_2017-xnbn“Ben Bedford isn’t gunning for poet laureate of Illinois but if ever there was an equivalent honor for a singer-songwriter he’d have to be in the running.”
-Roy Kasten, The Riverfront Times-St. Louis

In the past twelve years since the release of his first album, Bedford has played his songs for audiences all over the United States and Europe.  Ben’s albums have charted highly on the Euro Americana charts and the Folk-DJ charts and his music has been played on National Public Radio’s Car Talk  and syndicated programs such as “River City Folk” (syndicated by WFMT), “The Midnight Special” (syndicated by WFMT), BBC-Scotland, and the SIRIUS XM station “The Village”, all helping to gain Bedford a wider geographical audience.  In May of 2018, Bedford was named one of the six Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk winners at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas.

We are most pleased to welcome Ben back to the Cousin Andy’s stage!
