The Bath Festival are pleased to present multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/producer Ben Folds in The Forum. Ben continues his “Ben Folds & A Piano” solo tour in 2018, delivering a unique power rock performance that showcases his recently released songs and classic hits using the intimacy of just a piano.
In addition to a series of solo rock dates, Folds is also slated to perform his critically acclaimed piano concerto and pop hits with a host of orchestras throughout the U.S. His concerto was featured in his first classical pop rock album “So There” in 2015, which topped both the Classical and Classical Crossover charts.
Widely regarded as one of the major music influencers of our generation, Folds has spent over a decade sharing the stage with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras – from Sydney, Australia to the Kennedy Center. For five seasons he was a judge on the popular NBC series “The Sing Off,” which catapulted the art of a cappella into the national spotlight, and helped launch the careers of numerous a cappella groups.
Throughout his career, Folds has created an enormous body of genre-bending musical art that includes pop albums as the front man for Ben Folds Five, multiple solo rock albums, as well as unique collaborative records with artists from Sara Bareilles and Regina Spektor, to Weird Al and William Shatner.
