Ben Sures

Ben would be best described a s a wiz of a guitar player who tells great stories in song. A natural stage presence he connects with his audience in a very laid back way, it’s a bit of ‘taking the audience to a story song vacation’. Songs about everything from imaginary rayguns to sandwiches prepared for him by his father when he was a young boy. A Ben Sures concert includes humour, storytelling, sing a long and great guitar playing. Sures is immersed in the history of roots music so you feel the old traditions informing this contemporary songwriter’s music.

Sures is a winner of numerous songwriting contests including the John Lennon and the International songwriting contest. He has traveled far and wide across Canada performing at Festivals, small clubs, fairs, town squares and living rooms. He has also toured the UK on three previous occasions and performed in Beirut, Lebanon. He is well known for his work on CBC Radio as part of ‘The Irrelevant Show’ as well as the many interviews and broadcasts on Canada Live, The Round Up, Morningside, Madly Off in all Directions, The Vinyl Café and more.
