Hungrytown returns to Wardsboro for July 15 concert

WARDSBORO — Folk music returns to Wardsboro on Saturday, July 15, as Wardsboro Curtain Call presents Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, the husband-and-wife duo better known as Hungrytown, from nearby Townshend. They will be performing their new songs from the upcoming album Circus for Sale.

Through many years of worldwide touring, Hall and Anderson have crafted Hungrytown into what they call an “artistic hybrid,” which includes “Celtic and Americana, ballads and psychedelia, sunshine and darkness, joy and despair,” both within the same album and the same song. Their albums include Further West, Any Forgotten Thing, Hungrytown, Sunday Afternoon, and Rebecca Hall Sings!

Hungrytown didn't close up shop during the pandemic. They spent their time organically crafting Circus for Sale. A review from Jeni Hankins, a singer-songwriter from Appalachia now living in England, states “Circus for Sale is the soundtrack for the film we all lived during the pandemic and the sequel for the life we are living now.”

Their most recent album is “part wistful reflection and part forecast of things to come, always conveyed with precisely the right words married to a waterfall of companion folk sounds,” say organizers.

The show takes place in the Wardsboro Town Hall; doors open at 6:30 p.m., and music begins at 7 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door. Plan to bring your own refreshments and beverages to enjoy in the café setting. For more information, email [email protected] or call 802-896-6810.
