Ben Folds Tickles Ivories Across The Nation

Ivory tickler and all-round swell guy Ben Folds is currently touring the country in support of his recent live release, Ben Folds Live. The album, inspired by live albums of his youth by such varied acts as Earth Wind and Fire and Peter Frampton, covers material spanning his career, from Ben Folds Five songs to tracks from his solo debut, Rockin' The Suburbs.
