Ben Prestage Friday 5:30 & 9:00 PM
January 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Hailed by some as “the future of Southern music”, Ben Prestage will
perform true American roots music and down-home Southern Country
Blues on slide guitar, banjo, and diddley-bow at The Green Parrot
Hailing from the Deep South, and born the grandson of a
Mississippi sharecropper, Prestage has been soaked in blues tradition
and Mississippi culture since birth. Ben Prestage creates a fresh,
new sound while resurrecting the musical spirits of the past.
Prestage was voted one of the top 3 best performers at the
International Blues Competition in Memphis and he is the only two time
recipient of the prestigious “Lyons/Pitchford Award” for “best
diddley-bow player.” Ben now utilizes his mastery of the diddley-bow
to take this traditional, Southern, folk instrument to new dimensions.
