Genre-Bending Cellist Ben Sollee kicks off 
Fall Bike Tour at Preservation Hall
Thursday, October 27 @ 10:00pm – Ben Sollee is a cellist and vocalist known for his percussive playing style, genre hopping songwriting, wide appeal, and political activism. His music incorporates banjo, guitar, percussion and unusual cello techniques to create a unique mix of folk, bluegrass, jazz and R&B.  Lauded by NPR’s Morning Edition as one of 2007’s Top Ten Unknown Artists of The Year, Sollee has since made a name for himself both in touring and recording.  Ditch The Van 2011” is the fourth tour of its kind in which Ben Sollee and his band travel exclusively using bicycles as transportation, instruments and all! This choice is not a novelty or a nod to the green trend. Apropos to his overarching story, Sollee’s goal is to gain a deeper connection to his fans and their surrounding communities.  Join him for the first stop on his tour of the Southeastern states.
