|Joe Walsh - Ben Somers - Grant Gordy|
Ben Somers (double bass/vocals/sax) grew up surrounded by music and playing gigs with his father, professional country musician Steve Somers. Ben began playing the sax at 16 and studied jazz at Middlesex University. Whilst there, he acquired a double bass and immersed himself in bluegrass and folk. In addition to his day job as a busy, in-demand session musician in London, Ben has toured and recorded with many artists including Dr John, Seal, Bruce Molsky and Dirk Powell.
Joe K Walsh (mandolin/vocals) - hailing from Portland, Maine, the “other” Joe Walsh is known for his exceptional tone and taste. Named by CBC as “one of the best mandolinists of his generation”, after a number of years with bluegrass supergroup the Gibson Brothers Joe currently splits his time between the group Mr Sun and a trio with Brittany Haas and Owen Marshall. As well as teaching regularly at music camps across America, he’s also a mandolin instructor at the Berklee College of Music.
