Event Information

Ben Caplan is a genre bending songwriter and a performer with a captivating presence. From the moment he walks onto the stage, you are filled with his infectious spirit. You can feel Caplan's comfort and ease as he strides in front of the crowd and begins the controlled collective descent into chaos.
In his latest project, Ben Caplan explores themes of immigration, loss, darkness, love, sex, and God. Caplan is touring with a fresh batch of songs which were originally composed for a new musical play called Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story. The award winning play, which had it's international debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, has been a smash hit and it's next stop is a whopping 7-week residency Off Broadway in early 2018. Between performances of the play, Caplan is hitting the road to play concerts across Europe and North America with a new lineup of musicians.
The sound is rooted in Caplan's resonant baritone voice, at times sounding like a lamb's wool blanket, and in another moment like a steel wool scouring pad. Ben Caplan's voice is supported with the sounds of piano, accordion, organ, clarinet, saxophone, violin, drums, and the occasional acoustic guitar. There are rumours that a new album announcement is just around the corner. In the meantime, tickets are going on sale for the next round of international tour dates.

Venue Information:

The Lexington is a classic London boozer turned lounge bar, with a hint of Kentucky charm and lashings of rock & roll excess. Enjoy award winning food served up with our favourite American craft beers or just lounge around in our baroque mezzanine exploring the best bourbon selection in London. If you like it a little bit louder, head upstairs for the latest and greatest bands in our live venue. Then dance the night away with our family of music loving DJs, playing everything from 20s jazz to the newest indie through the sea of counter-cultural sounds into the wee small hours.
