Ben Caplan & The Casual Smokers have announced a headline show at Whelan’s, Wexford Street on Saturday 19 November 2016

Tickets priced €16 inclusive of booking fee go on sale at 9am this Friday, 10 June from Ticketmaster outlets and

Ben Caplan has spent much of this past year on the road supporting his latest record, Birds With Broken Wings, including a run through Europe and the UK which saw him play 43 shows in 53 days. During that time, The Independant UK called Caplan “An unmistakable presence,” while The Guardian UK claimed that an “evening with the larger-than-life Caplan makes for rollicking fun.” The Halifax artist is just putting the wraps another stretch of dates through the UK as he prepares to return home to North America for a string of dates throughout Canada and the US. Full tour dates can be found below.

The critical acclaim for Caplan’s live show is no surprise, he is simply unforgettable. With his huge beard and unruly mane, he is as visually striking as he is aurally compelling. But looks are deceiving. Once he has your attention, Caplan can croon smoother than a glass of single malt whisky, pouring beauty into a harsh world.
