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 (London, England) and David Berkeley (Santa Fe, New Mexico) 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. They have sailed their ship back a century or so in their shabby Victorian duds, and their song and story cycle follows the pair across the open waters and from town to town as they travel the frontier bouncing from one failed endeavor to another. Though they fall for temptation and countless false promises, their belief in humanity and each other never flags. The performance is three parts concert, one part theater. You will sing and sway along.

Trust us. Get your tickets now.

“Purposely timeless yet anachronistic, a sort of aural steampunk” - Santa Fe New Mexican

"It’s part balladry, part performance art, and totally cool. … Think Simon & Garfunkel lost at sea, and you get a sense of the mythic world at play here." - Philadelphia Inquirer

“Sensational!” - John Platt, WFUV
