ben-carr-photo-for-website-cr-rebekah-wiley.jpgBen Carr is a Southern Vermont based musician focused on performance and education of drum set, percussion, and 'ukulele. He performs solo and also fronts his own band, the Ben Carr Music Project, and is a member of blues guitarist Sunny Lowdown's band. He has also appeared with many regional bands, including R&B/jazz artist Patty Carpenter, the Americana roots group the Milkhouse Heaters, and the original Vermont reggae outfit Mo Ambesa. In addition to these groups, Ben has shared the stage with Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown, Trumystic, Carlos Averhoff, Eugene Uman, Lou Erlanger, Ayizan Sannon, Page McConnell and Mike Gordon, Lil' Rev, Gerald Ross, and many more.

Ben's music combines his early years of growing up in SE Pennsylvania with his time spent living in New Orleans and Vermont. From this melting pot of rhythms, ideals, life experience and love comes a truly original style of music which reflects these influences and can be heard within his compositions. Ben is currently working on his 6th studio project, Uke+Drums=Love, which is a combination of his two musical passions. The album is set to release in November 2018.

As an educator, Ben's philosophy is to bring joy and fulfillment to the instrument. The goal of every teaching interaction is to facilitate the enjoyment, appreciation, and understanding of the language of music.
