Singer-songwriter/actor Ben Dickey is scheduled to perform at 7 p.m. May 17 at The Forge Bar and Grill in Ben Wheeler. Dickey made his acting debut in Blaze, Ethan Hawke’s biopic about doomed Texas singer-songwriter Blaze Foley last year. That led to more acting roles on the horizon.
Dickey is touring with his latest album,
A Glimmer on the Outskirts, all over the country and makes a stop in Ben Wheeler for a solo show. He enjoys the path he’s own now he says and sums up his life with a quote from Blaze:
"You might not get what you go after, but you do get what you wouldn’t have got, if you hadn’t gone after what you didn’t get."
