“A tour de force of contemporary acoustic guitar styles… A virtuoso guitarist.” Xpress Mag

After a big 2023 touring the UK, New Zealand and with plenty of festivals around WA (Bluesfest Perth, Blues at Bridgetown, WA Guitar Festival), Ben Catley kicks off the new year with his third show at The Ellington Jazz Club. With previous packed houses at The Ellington, Ben has garnered a following of those who appreciate intricate guitar playing and an infectious stage energy.

This show will come directly after Ben opens for legendary USA blues-man Walter Trout, who is considered one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time – taking Eric Clapton’s place in The Bluesbreakers, and playing for John Lee Hooker and Canned Heat.

With mesmerising guitar playing, huge vocals and an ecstatic stage presence, Ben pours every ounce of his soul into his live show. Having toured far and wide and appearing on huge international festival lineups, he captivates audiences like few other solo artists.

With regular music releases, his creative style of guitar-focussed blues/roots/folk/rock continues to evolve. While mostly known for his high energy style, he has recently been releasing collections of atmospheric finger-style guitar instrumentals ‘Cloudcabins’, that he has weaved into his live set, creating a diverse show of guitar craftsmanship.
