An Evening with Son of Town Hall at Grewelthorpe Village Hall

Sat 10th March 2018

“It’s part balladry, part performance art, and totally cool. American singer-songwriter David Berkeley and Brit Ben Parker have taken a step back in time with the creation of Son of Town Hall. Think Simon & Garfunkel lost at sea, and you get a sense of the mythic world at play here.” – Philadelphia Inquirer

“Sensational!” – John Platt, WFUV

“Nothing short of stunning” – Lisa Schwartz, Director Philadelphia Folk Festival

“Unique and beautiful…unforgettable.” – Phil Collins (Austin, TX)
“Purposely timeless yet anachronistic, a sort of aural steampunk”
– Santa Fe New Mexican

Meet 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 London-based songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist, and Berkeley, a celebrated singer/songwriter/ author create 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.
