Join us for an evening of harmony, history, and hilarity as international duo Son of Town Hall sails into the port of Philadelphia to serenade us. Philly Folk Festival veterans and returning to the fest this summer, Son of Town Hall is unlike anything you've ever seen before. Expect angelic singing and a stage show that will leave you transformed with laughter and tears, drunk on adventure and a renewed faith in the human spirit.
The band was born when songwriters Ben Parker and David Berkeley found themselves side by side 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. The two wrote songs upon the seas that are at once haunting and uplifting.
