The hour-long concert is also unusual because it won’t feature pared-down takes of The Crooked North’s songs or traditional folk tunes. Instead the multi-instrumentalist will play an entirely improvised set, taking fan-submitted lyric ideas as inspiration for the impromptu songs that will emerge.
Ben Proctor will perform via livestream from Bop Shop Records at bopshop.com/live on Friday, Nov. 20, at 8 p.m. The concert is free of charge, but tips are recommended via Venmo, @banjohood63. benproctor.com.
