Ben McElroy is a composer, guitarist and fiddle player. He has played in numerous bands, and toured all over Europe. His compositions are largely a mixture of folk and classical. Influenced by composers such as Danny Elfman and Yann Tiersen, his orchestral music has been described as dreamlike, and his use of space makes it ideal to go with visuals in film and TV productions. Dramatic and elegant, or dark and dangerous -- what's not to love about Ben's dynamic compositions!
