Son Of Town Hall are the unusual union of London’s Ben Parker and New Mexico’s David Berkeley. “Born when the two found themselves side by side aboard a junk raft (“The Son Of Town Hall”) crossing the mighty Atlantic in search of new lands, the two have sailed their ship back a century or so and their songs follow the pair across the open waters.” We think they’re being metaphorical. And there’s this too: “Parker and Berkeley have imagined a world that trancends time and space, complete with Victorian-era outfits, meditations about the sea and songs so pure that they beg you to sing along.” Which does sound intriguing. Son Of Town Hall embark on their UK tour from March 2018 including shows in Milton Keynes, Sheffield, London and Bury (full dates below).
