Ben Sures

Ben Sures is known to Sudbury and NLFB for his memorable snippet of life songs, fantastic humour and great guitar playing. An engaging concert  performer and songwriter, Sures is a past winner of The John Lennon Songwriting contest and The International Songwriting contest, he is also well known to fans of CBC’s Irrelevant show where he spent two years as resident humorist songwriter. Ben’s two recently released albums are a live record set of his best loved songs, accompanied by some of Canada’s best folk musicians and horn players, Live at The Yardbird Suite and Poema Poematis. Not only does Sures hold his own as a songwriter but his last appearance at NLFB included a guitar workshop where he was featured alongside JP Cormier and Kevin Breit.

This year in add-on to performing his music, Sures will be presenting his recently published children’s book The Boy Who Walked Backwards based on a true story about a boy from Serpent River First Nation (Cutler, Ontario).

Ben Sures is returning to NLFB accompanied by Eva Foote on vocals and guitar and Liam Smith on upright bass.
