Ben Morgan-Brown at Altitude Festival
31 July 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
‘Devon’s little festival with the big heart ‘
‘The first Altitude took place in a neighbour’s field inn 2015, with 500 like-minded people with a lust for life, good times and a passion for original quality music. Since then we have grown, but still feel we have maintained a super-friendly vibe to the festival, laid back by day and seriously fired up and ready for anything by night.
Our vision was to bring new emerging independent music of all genres to the Blackdown Hills for everyone to enjoy, that would not only bring the local community together but also bring in others to come and enjoy what the local area has to offer.
Altitude is a lot of hard work and sometimes a rollercoaster but we love it and hope you do to – when you come along, make sure you say hello to us!
Ben Morgan-Brown is an English pastoral folk & blues guitarist, whose instrumental compositions draw inspiration from nature, nostalgia, and the antics of his three-year-old Border Collie (and other creatures).
His playing has been described as “just beautiful” by Grammy-award winning producer and songwriter Joe Henry, and his 2021 album Moment has been praised for containing “extraordinary guitar virtuosity” by BBC Music Introducing, “seriously confident playing chops” by Fresh On The Net, and “great playing and tone” by Collings Guitars.
Ben is familiar to many in the online acoustic guitar community as the presenter of the highly-regarded YouTube channel Acoustic Review. With close to 6,000 subscribers and over 1,000,000 views, Ben’s reviews of acoustic guitars and related products often feature his original music and draw praise both for his playing and his expertise from across the globe.
