Ben Fisher Returns From The Land Of Ben-Gurion

Ben Fisher is visiting the Pacific Northwest this spring and will be playing his first show in Seattle in over a year and a half.

In this one-off performance, he'll be previewing songs from the concept record he's working on, titled Does The Land Remember Me? before jetting back to Jerusalem to work more on the record, eat copious amounts of falafel and enjoy the 85 degree weather that will be waiting for him.

Have a question about what it's like writing a concept record about Israel or about daily life in Jerusalem? Shoot an email to and it'll be discussed at the show.

“Ben Fisher’s style is easily categorized as “folk” and upon hearing him for the first time you instantly notice how Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt are influences of his. Between his guitar plucking and booming vocals, Ben Fisher has this magnetic draw that sucks people in. His songs vary on their meaning, bouncing from fishing in “Cast Your Line” to the Ballard Locks in “Hiram M. Chittenden” but Fisher paints colorful lyrics and stories throughout his entire album. If you have the chance you catch him at a live show, do so. You will definitely not regret it and this is a musician who will continue to only finesse his art.” - SSGmusic
