Multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter Ben-David Warner lives with one foot in the choral music world and one in the folk music world. A former member of Scythian, he is currently the assistant conductor of The University Singers at UVA and The Oratorio Society of Virginia as well as a touring folk musician bringing his blend of Irish Americana to a city near you.

Trained on the classical violin, Ben-David plays guitar, banjo, fiddle, and just about anything with strings that he can get his hands on. Ed Helms’s The Bluegrass Situation praises his “Built These Walls” as a “blue-collar ballad we can all get behind.” He recorded his debut solo album Red Rockin' Chair in 2015.
