Bio

Note: please see "upcoming shows" link below for Gigs.

North Dakota based Ben Suchy performs solo "Stomp-Grass" or with his 3-4 piece band. His solo show is borderline one-man band. Full of stomping foot percussion, electro-harmonica, flat-pick, finger-style guitar and lap slide banjitar it’s a site to see. This music can sway anywhere from Blues-Folk like John Prine, or G Love to pounding rhythms like Ben Harper and Xavier Rudd. His band performs roots-rock music that embraces folk, Americana, blues, and rock while adding danceable grooves and rhythms to the sounds foundation. Suchy is a multi-instrumentalist and a fantastic songwriter with deep lyrics and music to dig through.

Suchy's songs have been applauded by the Minnesota Folk Festival and Walnut Valley Folk Festival. In 2011 he was a New Folk Finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival and then returned in the Fall for their Wine and Music Fest. He has performed at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, Grassroots Festivals in NY and NC, Sioux River Folk Festival, Sundance Film Festival, and the National Music Museum. Suchy has consistently gigged and toured throughout the US for the past 10 years. He has shared stages with such elites as: Ben Taylor Band, David Lindley and Wally Ingram, Donna the Buffalo, Los Lobos, EOTO, The Donnas, Peter Ostroushko, That 1 Guy, Heatbox, Gypsyfoot, Jon Wayne and the Pain, Natty Nation, Dave Moore, and many more.
