Benjamin Trott

Lead Guitar

Swift fingered lead guitarist Ben Trott has been exposed to English folk music as far back as he can remember, and grew up to the sounds of his father’s folk flute playing. Ben has experience of a wide variety of musical genres, but loves folk first and foremost:

“I find the role of the guitar in folk music very interesting, from the acoustic accompaniment styles of players such as Tim Edey and Martin Carthy to the flair and expression of Richard Thompson’s electric guitar. I feel privileged to be a part of The Albion Band because of it’s history and because I believe this line-up will live up to it and take it further!”
