This event has been and gone.

Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Ben Folds returns to the UK in 2016 for an unmissable tour with yMusic, including two nights at the London Palladium. This follows the release of his critically acclaimed album So There, out now on New West Records, as well as eight new chamber rock songs recorded with yMusic.

Ben and yMusic also paired up for a sensational sold out performance at the Royal Opera House in August, marrying pop and classical music flawlessly to perform new pop songs alongside Ben Folds hits, in what was a ‘huge success’ according to the Evening Standard.

Ben Folds appearing at this event

Pianist and songwriter Ben Folds went solo following the demise of his 90's band Ben Folds Five. With obvious nods to piano greats like Elton John and Billy Joel, Folds has a snazzy sense of popcraft with some of the most witty and poignant lyrics. Ben's piano keys are just as often pounded with sneakered feet as mesmerisingly swift fingers. His piano insurance fees must be huge!

Lera Lynn

Lera Lynn appearing at this event

Lera Lynn is a singer songwriter from Athens Georgia who specialises in southern folk and American music. When Lera Lynn takes the stage, there is an undeniable feeling that she is something different, something special. Her sultry voice has a way of wrapping around melodies, enveloping the listener in her lyrics, rife with a plainspoken yet cutthroat honesty. When combined with her chordings, which are distinct, original and timeless in their own right, what is revealed is a songwriting craftsman already well on her way to establishing a niche that is very much her own.
