Hungrytown will perform their roots music at the Watertown Free Public Library as part of the Winter Concert Series.
Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson – the married couple that makes up the folk duo – have an album that appeared in the Top 10 of the American Folk DJ charts in June and July, and they recently completed a six-week tour of Europe. While on tour they performed for BBC Radio Wiltshire.
They met in New York City, but moved to Vermont in 2003. Hall sings and writes the lyrics and multi-instrumentalist Hall produces the music and comes up with the vocal harmonies. Both played music before forming Hungrytown – she sang jazz and he was a drummer in garage bands. They did not discover their love of folk music until a close friend – who died young due to a tragic misdiagnosis – passed them her collection of 1960s folk albums and her guitar.
Hungrytown plays at the Watertown Library, 123 Main St., on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. Admission is free and it is open to all ages.
