Benjamin Ziec - Sailing Out

Benjamin Zięć - Dirty Old Town (Ewan MacColl Cover)


Benjamin Zięć is this week’s special guest in The Moonshine Sessions.... we were thrilled to be paid a visit from the local legend with the incredible voice. He treated us to his impassioned blues number ‘Sailing Away’ before being joined by Stacy McMullen on banjo for the classic folk song ‘Dirty Old Town’.

Having previously worked with numerous major based Nottingham acts including Zenith, The Afterdark Movement, Origin One and working under his electronica persona of Trekkah, Zięć began performing as a solo act to explore his passion for blues and folk.

Recently, Zięć has headed up his own band The Rarebreeds to record and release his fantastic debut EP ‘Fallen Roots’. It allowed him to really show off his song writing talents plus his raw, rasping vocals which has marked him as one of the best rising performers in the region.
