Ben Rudnick & Friends Bring Celebration to Their Performances

Drawing on original songs and traditional material, the band seamlessly integrates classic Americana with their own unique sound. It’s kids, it’s families, it’s music… live music.
The band is in their 22nd year of making music for families. That includes twelve recordings, tours up and down the east coast, a week of shows in Colorado and a play about a certain frog, named Sam, and his alien buddy, Trip. The band is an institution in the Boston area and are happiest when playing outside on a perfect New England summer evening.
The tightly-honed quartet ties its identity to their New England homeland. Their sound is pure Americana. There’s a summer feel with a strong sense of celebration and happiness.
