Ben Wright About the Educator

Ben is a founding member and banjo player of the Prowlers. At 23 he bought a banjo on a whim in 1999 at the legendary Old Town School of Folk Music. Within weeks he fell under its spell and spent several years making up for not discovering it sooner. Ben played in several bands before forming the Prowlers including the popular Chicago Americana outfit, Outlaw Family Band. Ben plays a 2013 Deering Terry Baucom model banjo, uses GHS PF155 Custom Light banjo strings, and has a Hoffee Carbon Fiber Case.
