Ben will be joined on stage by his sons, Dylan and Izzak, Matt “Griff” Griffin!


Ben Green is a Deep Roots Blues songwriter with an original slide guitar style. For over twenty years, Ben has performed as a solo artist & has become a favorite among his listeners. He also collaborates with other great talent for some one of kind performances.

Released in December 2012, his Fourth CD “Can’t Live Without ’em” demonstrates once again his gifted songwriting skills, strong vocals and distinctive finger pickin’ and slide work. Definitely his best collection to date, his music matures with each release. And with more songs in the wind or already finished, he plans another release in 2013. You can purchase the newest recording, MP3 or CD at CD Baby:


His third collection, “Westboro Blues”, was released in 2008 and is a heavy dose of what he refers to as a “front porch pickin’ kind of blues”.

Performing on a variety of acoustic six & twelve string guitars, Ben is more than ready to get the Blues & ALWAYS leaves you wanting more!!

Ben Green represented MO Blues Association Inc in the 2009 International Blues Challenge as a semi-finalist in the Solo/Duo Category. He was one of sixty challengers from around the world.

Ben has been married to his lovely wife, Carlene for 16 years and together they have four beautiful children. Ben is a hard working man and father whose music is often inspired by his work and family.

After the opening set, guest jammers get their opportunities to step up on the stand join the fun!
