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.
“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
