I don’t normally write about the music scene. That’s Mr. Ballard’s turf. But last week he asked me to check out Ben Sollee and I’m so glad he did. Terrific cellist — yes, cellist — but such a soulful singer, too. Don’t believe me? Check him out on YouTube. Then check see his Pour House show on Saturday.
