Pedaling to fight poverty

Ben Sollee, in the lead, Katie Benson, Jordon Ellis and Marty Benson cruise along U.S. 21 in Beaufort on their way to perform at the The Arts Council of Beaufort County on Wednesday. They biked down from Charleston as part of their Pedaling Against Poverty Tour, which started in Wilmington, N.C., and ends Sunday in Jacksonville, Fla. They are raising funds and awareness of OxFam, a group that is working worldwide to fight poverty and injustice. Sollee is a classically trained cellist and singer-songwriter. His music incorporates banjo, guitar, percussion and unusual cello techniques to create a unique mix of folk, bluegrass, jazz and R&B.
