Canberra favourites Beth n Ben are back with the much-anticipated release of their third EP ‘Scenic Roots’ through Green Media on October 11th 2013. After the success of their first releases ‘Boarding Pass’ (2010) and ‘Economy Class’ (2011), the band decided to spend a bit more time and take the scenic route in the development of the new CD, experimenting with new genres and instruments. While staying true to their upbeat, happy go lucky vibe with tracks Walk On, The Musician, and Less than More, the band has experimented with a softer folk approach in the songs As the Hail Rains and Just Enough.
This diversity will be highlighted in the slightly unusual format and line up of the launch party which will be opened by up and coming acoustic folk rock act Brother Be. Beth n Ben will then take the stage to play their entire discography adding trumpet, sax, cello, and percussion to their standard four-piece lineup before the aptly named Party Gravy round out the night with their New Orleans style Big Brass Band sound.
Beth n Ben will be hitting the road in January to tour the release with plans to head to Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane with a bunch of shows in between including Newcastle, Lismore, Byron Bay, Yamba, Port Macquarie, Salamander Bay, Bulli, Wangaratta, Warnimbool, and Ballarat.
