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?
Welcome to the world of Son of Town Hall, the unusual union of Ben Parker of London, England, and David Berkeley of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The show is three-parts concert, one-part theatre. With superb musicianship, exquisite harmonies, Victorian-era outfits, meditations about the sea and songs, it will leave you transformed, convinced that you’ve never experienced anything quite like it.
Son of Town Hall originates from when Ben and David found themselves aboard a junk raft (“The Son of Town Hall”) crossing the mighty Atlantic in search of new lands, new inspiration and to recover squandered fortune. It’s as if the two sailed their ship back a century or so. “Perhaps it was the solitude out there,” Ben explains “or maybe it was the strong gratitude you feel when you finally encounter another vessel. Or maybe it was all the raw coffee beans and cheap rum we consumed... well whatever it was, we learned to sing out there. More importantly, we learned to sing together.”
