Ben Raftus + Morgan Stedman

Local singer/songwriters Ben Raftus and Morgan Stedman pull into The Carleton for a double bill show on Tuesday, November 15th. Show time is 8 PM and admission is only $5 at the door.


Ben received his first electric guitar in 2002 and took to it naturally. Self-taught, Ben would play for hours daily, knowing there is always more to learn; a philosophy to which he still adheres. He spent time delving deep into the blues, gaining immense appreciation for great musicians of the past as well as inspiration from artists of our time. It was not long after picking up the guitar that Ben began to write his own music. Although he always prided himself as a guitarist, Ben knew he had to do more if he wanted a career in music.

In late 2007 Ben began focusing on writing lyrics, shaping himself into a singer/songwriter. Though he primarily considers himself to be a guitarist, he is equally confident in his song writing, and takes both arts very seriously.
