After playing their first full show together in NYC last month, Ben and Ellen are currently on tour across Europe. The Manchester Evening News called the show there "captivating" and the Times of London said Ellen's appearance with Ben made the concert "ascend to another level."
The pair will return to the states to headline the Claremont Folk Festival in the LA area on May 31, a homecoming concert near the Folk Music Center that Ben's grandparents founded and Ellen still runs today.
