Out of the Blue Livestream Series with Ben Cosgrove
Wednesday - December, 23 @ 7:00pm
Ben Cosgrove is a traveling composer, pianist, and multi-instrumentalist from New England. He travels constantly all over the country, performing a unique variety of original instrumental music that explores themes of landscape, geography, and environment and straddles a line between folk and classical music. His “electric and exhilarating” live performances are at once dazzling and intimate: music that has been described as “stunning” and “compelling and powerful” — Red Line Roots has called him “stupidly talented” — all presented with “warmth, humor, honesty, and the easy familiarity of a troubadour.” Ben has toured, recorded, and collaborated with a long list of artists that includes The Ghost of Paul Revere, Max Garcia Conover, Joel Thetford, Caroline Cotter, Connor Garvey, and more, and he has served as artist-in-residence at institutions like Acadia National Park, White Mountain National Forest, the New England Trail, Isle Royale National Park, Harvard University, and the Schmidt Ocean Institute.
