Ben Benedict has been playing bluegrass since his father put a mandolin in his hands at the ripe old age of four. As a former member of the Henhouse Prowlers and Dog 1 he has toured both regionally and nationally, and can often be seen in clubs and festivals throughout the country with his band or sitting in with a variety of groups he has made friends with over the years.

His original song 'Simplify', as performed by the Henhouse Prowlers, won the 2010 International Acoustic Music Awards Bluegrass/Country song of the year. The song can also be heard on the popular video game 'Watchdogs' which was released in 2014. You can also hear Ben's original piece 'Newsome Ridge' as the theme song from the PBS mini-series 'The Ride of Our Lives', written, produced and recorded by NBC Today Show correspondent Mike Leonard.
