Description

It's been 10 years since Ben Whiteley first began performing with his Dad, Canadian folk legend Ken Whiteley. This past winter they decided to share the producer role for Ken's new CD and Ben began sharing his insight about where he thought his father's work might best focus. That shaped a winter of songwriting with definite funky, folky elements. As spring returned, they began talking about who best to play this new material with. When they got together with banjoist extraordinaire, Frank Evans and fantastic fiddler, Rosalyn Dennett, not only did the arrangements come alive, but they found they had that most special of things - a marvelous, 3 part vocal blend. And so was born Ken Whiteley and The Beulah Band! Ken has a long and honored history on the roots music scene. He has received 7 Juno Award Nominations, a Canadian Folk Music Award, a Genie Award for the Best Original Song in a Canadian movie and Lifetime Achievement Awards from Folk Music Ontario and the Mariposa Folk Festival. He has appeared at literally hundreds of folk festivals and concerts across North America and performed with legends such as Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, John Hammond, Stan Rogers and Raffi. His production work on 140 albums has resulted in 22 Juno Nominations, 2 Grammy Nominations and a host of other awards. Ken Whiteley and The Beulah Band are creating exciting new music that is deeply rooted in traditional North American folk forms. You'll hear echoes of blues, gospel, swing, string and jug band sounds. They are all outstanding and versatile instrumentalists and great singers. And if anyone can match the youthful energy of his bandmates it is Ken Whiteley.
