May 13, 2016
In this video, songwriter Benjamin Scheuer plays his song "Golden Castle Town," about returning to New York City. The footage was shot in a mix of locations, including the New York subway, Washington Square Park, and in the New York City Center theater where he's performed his remarkable one-man show called THE LION. Benjamin's show chronicles his life, his relationship with his father, his fight with cancer, and much more, and is propelled by his original songs, played on six guitars throughout the performance. Two of these are made by Froggy Bottom Guitars – an H-12 that was a 30th birthday present from his two younger brothers and which has an Adirondack spruce top and Madagascar rosewood back and sides, and a K-14 with Adirondack spruce top and Bastogne walnut back and sides.
