A 30-year-old Hamilton native and Halifax resident, Ben Caplan has been establishing a reputation for what the U.K.’s Independent newspaper called his “unmistakeable presence.” While it’s certainly hard to mistake his mammoth beard and fearsome appearance, it’s his music—“from Satanic hoedowns to swaying country heartbreakers” (The Guardian)—that people remember. With his band, the Casual Smokers, Caplan released In The Time of Great Remembering in 2011, and followed that album with Birds With Broken Wings in September 2015. Caplan has toured widely, hitting such far-flung events as the U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival, South by Southwest and the Woodford Folk Festival in Australia. As Caplan writes about himself: “Inspired in part by Eastern European and Jewish folk traditions, Ben Caplan mixes older musical sensibilities with his own soul, straight from his hairy heart.”
