Saturday 04 May sees us welcome the mythical world of Son of Town Hall to the Black Dyke Mills Heritage Venue. Son of Town Hall are the unusual union of Ben Parker of London, England, and David Berkeley of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Son of Town Hall was 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, new inspiration, and to recover squandered fortune. The two have sailed their ship back a century or so, and their song and story cycle follows the pair across the open waters and from town to town as they travel the frontier bouncing primarily from one failed endeavour to another. Though they fall for temptation and countless false promises, their belief in humanity and each other never flags.
