Split Bill: Gathering Wool / Ben Ranson
January 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Gathering Wool plays contemporary folk music with Paul Drinkwine, Cathie English and Randy Mickelberg.
Led by Cathie English, who is a folk singer/songwriter in Central Minnesota, writing beautifully crafted songs.
Sebeka artist Ben Ranson plans to put on a performance where you can listen to the world of central Minnesota through the eyes of this quirky storyteller.
Ranson said he has a funny set that’s left people laughing until they cry. The content is often filled with tales gathered up from the local area. His performance on Saturday will be a special one indeed as it will be filmed for a special promotion of his latest albums.
Ranson is a nylon-string, finger-style guitarist and comic singer-songwriter from Sebeka, Minn. He calls himself a “folksinger,” but he is much more than that. His songs about potato inspectors, love, taxidermists, garbage men, grasshoppers, and other unusual subjects are sure to speak to way and life of those that know this area well.
“I write about the world as I see it, where I live it, from my point of view,” Ranson said in a Cultural Center news release.
