Discovering the guitar at the age of 10, Ben DeBerry was hooked from the start. Ben spent his formative years honing his craft through live performances and teaching private guitar lessons. After moving to Nashville in 2006, Ben and his wife Dorothy Daniel started their original band The Danberrys. Having embraced bluegrass in 2008 at The 5 Spot (bar in East Nashville) weekly bluegrass jam, Ben’s acoustic guitar playing is a lynchpin in the Danberrys sound. His solid playing and grasp of theory leads to interesting harmonic shifts - letting their music straddle and dip into the crannies between genres. Ben is an award-winning song-writer and recording artist with The Danberrys, including multiple IMA nominations and a recent win in the best bluegrass song category.
