ben sollee

a few years ago dannon and i heard an npr special late one night when we were working on an art project.  it was the perfect mix of soul, bluegrass, and indie, all played on the cello!  we were amazed and instantly in love with ben sollee's music. a few months later, ben came to san francisco to do a show at a small theatre by my house, so we went and hung out with him for a bit after.  he's the nicest guy in the world, incredibly humble, and a fantastic musician. not to mention he's a huge environmental activist, choosing to tour the entire country by bicycle... with his cello in tow.  yup, amazing.

do you guys remember that imaginary art space i built here on my blog last week? 
well i've decided to throw a concert with ben sollee, and all of you are invited. 
so put your dancing shoes on and get ready to have a blast!

happy wednesday everyone!
