Raft craft: Son of Town Hall
As Son of Town Hall, Santa Fe’s David Berkeley and London’s Ben Parker present themselves as a duo born of the high seas, where they traveled together on a raft, crafting harmonies and writing songs about wonder and woe. Their sound is light and plucky, purposely timeless yet anachronistic, a sort of aural steampunk. In preparation for recording an album together, the pair plays an acoustic set at the San Miguel Mission (401 Old Santa Fe Trail) at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 18. Tickets are $12 and $7 for students and children, available at www.brownpapertickets.com or at the door. — J.L.
