Hungrytown: Folk Mus
Saturday, Dec. 9, 2 PM
or call 540-775-2147.
"After more than a decade of world-wide touring and three album releases, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson--otherwise known as the folk duo Hungrytown--have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting: 'It’s great to hear an act eschew sentimentality in favor of honesty and to prove that you don’t have to go raiding the memory of others to find the stuff that really good songs are made of,' writes Jedd Beaudoin of Popmatters.

Lyricist Rebecca Hall is credited with compositions 'that sound as timeless as any traditional songs' (Northern Sky, UK) while producer/multi-instrumentalist/husband Ken Anderson is lauded for his 'remarkable affinity for instrumental embellishment' (No Depression) and for crafting Hungrytown’s 'gorgeous vocal harmonies' (Folk and Roots, UK)."-http://hungrytown.net

This free program is intended for adults, but music lovers of all ages are welcome. Please visit http://hungrytown.net for more information about the band and to hear some of their music.
