Ben Caplan 01

Halifax's Ben Caplan will play two eagerly anticipated hometown shows at the Company House on February 1st and 2nd. The gig on February 2nd with special guest Paper Beat Scissors is now totally sold out.  A second show on February 1st with guest Taryn Kawaja was announced Jan 3rd 2013.  Tickets can be found at After a much needed break from a year of non-stop touring, Ben Caplan returns to his life on the road with a slew of Canadian shows hitting stages in the Maritimes, Quebec and Ontario before heading to showcase at Folk Alliance International conference and festival in Toronto in February 2013.

Following his Canadian tour dates and a return visit to Texas' South by Southwest Music Festival, Ben will find himself sharing stages with the likes of Wilco, Santana, Ben Harper, Jason Mraz, Rufus Wainwright and more at the Byron Bay Folk Festival in Australia come April 2013. After the three-day festival he will perform in Melbourne and Sydney.

Last year was a break through year for the bearded folk wunderkind. Non-stop international touring, countless nominations which led to him taking home the much coveted Entertainer of the Year Award at the Nova Scotia Music Awards, and collaborating on a holiday single with Norwegian pop stars Katzenjammer are just a few of the many highlights. 2013 will see Ben working on his follow up release while maintaining a healthy tour and festival schedule.
