Ken’s live performances showcase his outstanding musicianship on guitars and mandolin, award winning original songs and his powerful vocals, called "...a cross between Pete Seeger and Tony Bennett on 11!" Whether leading his own group, solo or collaborating with peers at blues, folk, children’s festivals and concerts of all sizes, his “...deep knowledge and infectious passion” guarantee good times for all.

Ken and the Beulah Band's recent April concert tour was generously supported by the Arts Across Canada: Circulation and Touring Grant.  Thank you Canada Council for the Arts  for the much appreciated financial support. We also wish to thank all the amazing folks from those special ones who invited us to their venues and communities to perform, to the folks who hosted us in their homes and restaurants and finally, to the folks who came out to the shows. It truly was a wonderful 2 weeks. Thank you one and all.


For your enjoyment here are a couple of Ken Whiteley and the Beulah Band music videos and Ken's new song/video "That's What Makes America Great".  The later takes less than 2 minutes to watch. If you like it, we encourage you to share it. Ken had the idea and refrain line for months and then after he shared them at a solstice party the enthusiastic response gave him the energy to finish the song. May we all be encouraged to work on projects that have the potential to make our countries and our world a better place. Thanks to Liam Romalis and Mako Funasaka who jumped on Ken's ideas for the video and made it happen.
