See Ben Folds and a Piano on Friday at The Wellmont Theatre

April 7th, 2010

Ben Folds is most well known as the singing, piano-playing frontman of the Ben Folds Five. But in addition to side-project Fear of Pop’s Volume 1 (out in 1998), Folds has been recording solo material and playing it live—sometimes backed by a band—for years, going back to Rockin’ in the Suburbs, released on September 11, 2001, and on which he played most of the instruments. Songs for Silverman followed in 2005 and then Way to Normal came next in 2008. And now Folds is back. See him above, playing the Chatroulette-related “Ode to Merton,” and then see Ben Folds and a Piano in person at The Wellmont Theatre on Friday.
