There aren’t many bands who cross genres with the skill and energy of Ben Phan and the Soul Symphony. The musicians seamlessly blend folk, bluegrass and a touch of jazz with improvisation.
The band released Fear is the Teacher last summer, and Phan can be found playing regularly at any number of local venues. He has a performance planned at Franny’s Farm in Leicester for Pickin’ for Progress on Saturday, March 31, at 4 p.m.
Before a recent concert at The Grey Eagle, the full band gave an exclusive performance of two songs for Xpress and Acoustic Asheville.
