“Nothing short of stunning” - Lisa Schwartz, Philadelphia Folk Festival
Welcome to the mythic world of Son of Town Hall, the unusual union of Ben Parker of London, England, and David Berkeley of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Parker, a highly sought-after songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist, and Berkeley, a celebrated singer-songwriter/author have imagined a world that transcends time and space, complete with Victorian-era outfits, meditations about the sea and songs that beg you to sing along.
The show is three-parts concert, one-part theater. It will leave you transformed, with your heart full of laughter and tears, drunk on adventure and the tragic beauty of the human condition.
"Part balladry, part performance art, and totally cool...complete with Victorian-era costumes, sing-alongs, and meditations about the seafaring life....Think Simon & Garfunkel lost at sea, and you get a sense of the mythic world at play here." - Philadelphia Inquirer
