Roots Sessions – Ben Cipolla Band

Free entry / every Wednesday from 8.45pm
Ben Cipolla is a Cheltenham-based singer-songwriter who grew up in Wiltshire, where he cut his musical teeth as a precocious young busker. His smooth vocals have since migrated from the streets to the nation’s speakers, airing his material on BBC Introducing Sessions and Clare Teal’s Radio 2 show. He has performed at Glastonbury and Weymouth Olympic Ceremony (with Eliza Carthy), as well as on the continent, in Barcelona and Amsterdam.
“This lad is simply great. Fresh words, good stories, ace musicianship. He will be huge. Mark my words” – Ian Shaw, Award-winning Vocalist & Jazz FM Presenter
“His vocals are like having liquid chocolate dripped in your ears, smooth and rich, a truly spectacular instrument.”
— Geoffrey Head, Behind The Scene Gloucestershire
