Hungrytown (music)

I got chatting to John Cave when he was one of the three performers at the recent Under Ground Theatre's songwriter circle. He runs Seaford Folk Club which meets at the Royal British Legion in Claremont Road to enjoy mostly traditional folk music. Every week talented guest artistes from a range of musical backgrounds are booked to perform two extended sets in between which they are supported by short spots from the residents and other visiting performers.

This Friday, the 27th September, the visiting artist will be Jimmy Lee and the Edge of Chaos Orchestra, who will be followed on the 4th October by an American duo from Vermont who caught my ear, Hungrytown. The duo are Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson. Rebecca is an accomplished songwriter and vocalist who began singing as a child in church. Ken is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist as well as a talented producer and arranger. He played drums and keyboards in childhood, and has since moved on to bass, guitar, mandolin, banjo and harmonica. As well as Rebecca's earlier solo work, produced by Ken, Hungrytown have released two albums, the eponymous Hungrytown in 2008 and Any Forgotten Thing in 2011. They spend most of their time now touring the US, Canada and Europe.

Seaford Folk Club, Fri 4th Oct, 19:45.
Admission by donation which is used to pay the guest performer.
