American folk duo Hungrytown will perform the final four gigs of their month-long Scottish tour in Argyll over the next few days.
Beginning in Lochgilphead tonight (Thursday August 29), Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, from Vermont will bring their delicious blend of acoustic folk music to the Highlands and Islands with a gig in Tayvallich Village Hall, Lochgilphead, at 7.30pm, moving on to Benderloch’s Victory Hall, tomorrow, Friday August 30, at 8pm, and Craignure Village Hall at 7pm on Saturday August 31.
‘We are very happy to be coming to the region to do these shows,’ said Rebecca.
‘This will be our first visit to the area and we are very much looking forward to it.’
After more than 15 years of touring the world and three album releases, Rebecca and Ken have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting: ‘It’s great to hear an act eschew sentimentality in favour of honesty and to prove that you don’t have to go raiding the memory of others to find the stuff that really good songs are made of,’ writes Jedd Beaudoin of Popmatters.
Lyricist Rebecca Hall is credited with compositions, ‘that sound as timeless as any traditional songs’ (Northern Sky, UK) while producer/multi-instrumentalist/husband Ken Anderson is lauded for his ‘remarkable affinity for instrumental embellishment’ (No Depression) and for crafting Hungrytown’s ‘gorgeous vocal harmonies’ (Folk and Roots, UK).
