Son of Town Hall & Julia Weldon

Jalopy Theatre and School of Music | 315 Columbia Street | Red Hook

Jalopy Theatre and School of Music presents an evening with Son of Town Hall & Julia Weldon on Friday, August 18th, 2017, in Red Hook.

Welcome to the mythic world of Son of Town Hall, the unusual union of Ben Parker of London, England, and David Berkeley of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Parker, a highly sought-after London-based songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist, and Berkeley, a celebrated singer/songwriter/guitarist/author have imagined a world that transcends time and space, complete with Victorian-era outfits, meditations about the sea and songs that beg you to sing along.

The show is three-parts concert, one-part theater. It will leave you transformed, with your heart full of laughter and tears, drunk on adventure and the tragic beauty of the human condition.

On the verge of starting her next album, Brooklyn indie-folk-pop artist Julia Weldon instead found herself awaking from a coma after a gender affirming surgery. One year later after a fortunate recovery and songs to tell the story, the self-taught, nationally recognized musician went across the pond to England to record her new material with Drew Morgan (producer of Perfume Genius). As a follow-up to her critically acclaimed album, Light Is A Ghost, Weldon describes her new work as a contemplation of polarities: heartbreak and new love, connection and loss, life and death.
