Fiddle / Whistles
Born in Dublin, Ireland Ben was bought up in London of Irish and French parentage.
He started his musical education at the age of six on tin whistle before moving onto to piano and eventually violin. Ben fell in love with the violin under the careful guidance of his violin mummy Sarah Drury. Ben has been quoted as saying ‘hearing Yehudi Menuhin playing the Brahms violin concerto changed my life’. In his formative years Ben won the under 16 All Ireland fiddle competition and the Bach Unaccompanied Violin Competitions and attended the prestigious Menuhin School. Ben graduated at the Royal College of Music and Trinity College of Music London under Gillian Findlay and Hugh Bean respectively.
Ben is a multi instrumentalist and multi genre artist and has toured extensively from the age of 15 till the present day.
