Inspired by musicians like the Grateful Dead and Tony Rice, Ben Peters incorporates elements of rock, bluegrass, and funk into his unique finger-picking guitar style. New to Homer, Ben previously gigged in the southern Maine music scene with jam band Jelly Sauce. As a solo artist he adopts the ‘Travis picking’ style made popular by guitarists like Jerry Reed and Tommy Emmanuel to accompany his own melodic leads with a simultaneous rhythm and bass. Though practiced in playing with other musicians, this style allows him to be his own band.
