Ben Morgan-Brown

Saturday #PVFF21

Ben Morgan-Brown is an English pastoral folk & blues guitarist, whose instrumental compositions draw inspiration from nature, nostalgia, and the antics of his three-year-old Border Collie (and other creatures).

His playing has been described as “just beautiful” by Grammy-award winning producer and songwriter Joe Henry, and his 2021 album Moment has been praised for containing “extraordinary guitar virtuosity”  by BBC Music Introducing, “seriously confident playing chops” by Fresh On The Net, and “great playing and tone” by Collings Guitars.

Ben is familiar to many in the online acoustic guitar community as the presenter of the highly-regarded YouTube channel Acoustic Review.  With over 5,000 subscribers and close to 1,000,000 views, Ben’s reviews of acoustic guitars and related products often feature his original music and draw praise both for his playing and his expertise from across the globe.
