Ben Lahring Biography

From his formative years spent in tropical northern Australia to a globe-spanning music career, Ben Lahring has established himself as a captivating composer and performer with “absolutely beautiful” interpretations (Liona Boyd) and a “gift of playing the intention behind the music” (William Beauvais, composer). Lahring completed his graduate studies in classical guitar performance at the University of Calgary and has always been bold in his musical explorations, with engagements ranging from a year-long solo-guitar performance residency in Sydney, Australia, to touring with choirs, rock bands and soul singers. He was a regular fixture in the New York City guitar scene for several years, where he released his first album of solo guitar music, praised for displaying “a natural feel for the music” (This is Classical Guitar). His latest album, Driftwood, has been reviewed to high acclaim as “a work of originality and shimmering beauty” (Vivascene) and “one of the most singularly beautiful guitar recitals” (Fanfare Magazine). Ben Lahring runs a music publishing company called MusiCurate and is the classical guitar instructor at Ambrose University. He is also an Associate Composer with the Canadian Music Centre and a guitar examiner with the Royal Conservatory of Music.
