The Music and Words of Ben Weaver


Join musician and poet Ben Weaver for a free* performance in the galleries of the Minnesota Marine Art Museum on Thursday, August 8, from 6:00-7:00 PM.

Ben Weaver is a songwriter and poet who travels by bicycle. He uses his music as a tool to strengthen relationships between people and their local ecosystems. Ben’s most recent project Music For Free saw him riding 3000 miles from Canada to Mexico along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route with his guitar and banjo making stops on the route to offer free performances to the communities along the way. Ben has completed many wilderness-music-by-bike tours, released nine studio albums and five books of poetry. Given the choice, he will side with the animals, lakes, rivers, and the trees.
