About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

I work hard to keep your entire live music experience enjoyable and stress-free! I bring my own professional grade equipment, and I always arrive early. I have over twenty years of performance experience, and a Master of Music degree specializing in guitar performance. I look forward to connecting with you and hearing about your event! PERFORMANCE BIO From his formative years spent in tropical northern Australia to a globe-spanning music career, Ben Lahring has established himself as a captivating performer with “absolutely beautiful” interpretations (Liona Boyd) and a “gift of playing the intention behind the music” (William Beauvais, composer). Ben has always been bold in his musical explorations, with engagements ranging from a year-long solo-guitar performance residency in Sydney, Australia, to touring with choirs, rock bands and soul singers. He was a regular fixture in the New York City guitar scene for several years, where he released his first album of solo guitar music, praised for displaying “a natural feel for the music” (This is Classical Guitar). Ben's repertoire ranges from Classical, Spanish, Jazz, and Basso Nova to covers of Country, Pop, and Rock favourites. Ben's latest album, Driftwood, has been reviewed to high acclaim as "a work of originality and shimmering beauty" (Vivascene) and “one of the most singularly beautiful guitar recitals” (Fanfare Magazine). He completed his graduate studies as a scholarship student at the University of Calgary.

Ben was absolutely amazing at my wedding. He is extremely professional and very talented and accomodating. I am so glad I chose him for my ceremony and highly recommend him.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 1, 2011From Jackson Heights, NY

Regret delay. Away at VMA Awards in LA. I sing. Sorry I have to give Ben the hightest rating, because he deserves it. He is an gifted young artist, who inspired me with trustful accompaniment on the guitar, a musician who is very patient with my ideas. And he gave me much confidence. Coaching me on, he enabled a well-received concert at an elegant dinner party that swelled to over 250 people. His guitar might as well have been an orchestra. Often under difficult logistics, Ben was good natured and a true showman, able to deal with spontaneous musical demands. I would recommend anyone musically to Ben Lahring. And check him out on YouTube. Ward Lape
