Ben Folds

From the day Ben Folds received a piano at age nine, he was obsessed. Moving around frequently at a young age made meeting friends tough, so musical pursuits took up a lot of his free time. Now he’s on tour to promote his newest album, Way to Normal, which includes a duet with Regina Spektor and a song inspired by falling off a stage in Japan. And as a Winston-Salem native, you know he’ll bring his best to North Carolina. See listing on page 43 for more details.  March 1, Ovens Auditorium
