See Ben Cooper basically IS the band and he recorded The Family Tree; The Roots in a tool shed in Jacksonville, Florida using instruments from the 1800s (types of instruments, presumably not actually all 100 + year old). He didn’t do this because he is insane. He may well be but in this case there was a reason for the “madness.” The record is about a family from the era and he wanted to keep the vision pure apparently.
Cooper is also playing some shows, which he rarely does. The dates are below
8/6 Los Angeles, CA New LA Folk Festival
