Ben R. Mackie at Pete’s Candy Store
Sep 2, 2015 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm| Free
Australian born songwriter Ben R. Mackie “mixes folk and country inspired sounds with a distinctively Melbournian soul” (Beat Magazine) to create music that is stripped back, delicate but rough-around-the-edges: An outsider’s slant on the Americana genre.
No stranger to the world of live music, Mackie has been performing in bands since he was just a kid, along the way taking out many of Australia’s finest music prizes; including the country’s largest alternative radio station Triple J’s “Unearthed: Top Song” competition while with the group ‘The Polites’.
In 2013, Mackie decided it was time for a change of scenery. Armed with his Hummingbird, harmonica and a deep love for the rich history of American music, he left behind the comforts of his band and city for a new beginning in Brooklyn, New York.
