Programs >> 2 Guys Named Ben
Exclusively on Roots
Two Old-Time musicians, Ben Townsend and Ben Guzman, cycle across the United States playing music with friends, interviewing their heroes, and documenting the folks they meet along the way.
In the fall of 2014, Ben Townsend, a renowned storyteller and traditional musician from the Appalachian mountain region, and Ben Guzman, a native Angeleno, known for his involvement in the Los Angeles Old Time Social, The Bicycle Kitchen, and Triple Chicken Foot, rode their bicycles across the country, playing music, and filming regional musicians, and artists along the way.
Come with 2 Guys Named Ben on a musical bicycle tour starting in Hampshire County, West Virginia through the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Louisiana Bayou, along the Mexican border, through the southwestern desert, finally landing in Los Angeles, California.
At the end of their journey, the two Bens made an album of music gathered on the trip. Click the picture to learn more!
