Ben is an old friend of ours from way back when we were cool in played in bands together. I went up to Kingbird Farm, where he works, in Berkshire, NY this past weekend.
Of course, I couldn't help but bring him a up a new custom hat to accompany him at work in the fields and on his many adventures playing shows.
Here he is in his Whisler Civilian hat with his new pup, Liza in front of his solar-powered cabin on the farm's property. It really is a beautiful place.
