Hall, Rebecca Hungrytown in Concert Music
'Musically, Hungrytown is a rare breed. In this age of fusion, [Rebecca] Hall and [Ken] Anderson prefer to reverse-engineer modern folk. . .writing brand-new ballads that sound straight out of the '30s. Standing face to face, so close that their guitars almost touch, they sing into the same mic, evoking scenes from the glory days of the Grand Ole Opry.' Justin Shatwell - Yankee Magazine (November/December 2008) Hall & Anderson have created a program specifically tailored to libraries and their patrons. Unique to this presentation is a focus on the Appalachian and Celtic roots of their songwriting, with the performance of traditional songs relevant to the development of their style. Instrumentaion consists of guitar, bass and harmonica.
