HOWQUA aka Ben Campain

Sponsored by Garreembee 1770 House

Ben Campain built his craft as a renowned singer songwriter playing The Brooklyn Bowl in New York, touring Canada and playing support for Paul Kelly and several other incredible artists. 

His brutally honest emotive songs has had him penned “one to watch” by 5 time Grammy winner producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Rolling Stones). 

Taking a step back from music several years ago Ben Campain recently returned to 1770 to live (a place very close to his heart). He will now be playing a very special one off show sharing his music in the local community. Don’t miss this one
