“Purposely timeless yet anachronistic, a sort of aural steampunk”Santa Fe New Mexican
Imagine if Simon and Garfunkel were lost at sea, salt in their beards, wind at their backs, and whiskey in their bottles. What songs would they sing whilst stomping like melodious madmen on the boards of their boat? Or set yourself adrift for a piece, untether yourself from your daily affairs, bring only fresh water, a large writing pad and plenty of pencils. With only the endless sky above and the wine-dark waters below, what half-crazed tales would pour out of you?
Welcome to the mythic world of Son of Town Hall, the unusual union of Ben Parker of London and David Berkeley of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Ben, a highly sought-after London-based songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist, and David, a celebrated singer/songwriter/guitarist/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 theatre. It will leave you transformed, with your heart full of laughter and tears, drunk on adventure and the tragic beauty of the human condition.
