About Benny Blue, Ben Haravitch

A lifelong inhabitant of the Finger Lakes hills, Benny Bleu's music is as reflective of the place as the lakes themselves.  An award winning banjo player and cherished songwriter, Benny lives up to the truest form of folk music – made by the folks, for the folks.  His recent records Warm Prickly (2019) and Swatting the Flies (2021) are esteemed by local music connoisseurs as "soft and swaying, breezy, country folk" (CITY Newspaper) and "a fresh voice that speaks to the roots of Country, Old Time, and authentic American music" (Bernunzio Uptown Music).  His ever-fresh repertoire of exciting banjo and guitar instrumentals and thoughtfully written songs will meet you where you're at and provide a "musical antidote" (CITY) you didn't know you needed.
