JAMAICA- Jamaica’s 2012 Summer Music Series continues on Saturday, July 21, with West Townshend’s Hungrytown, the musical and married duo of Ken Anderson and Rebecca Hall. The show begins at 7 pm; admission is $10.

Anderson and Hall have been making music full time since swapping their midtown New York cubicles for the hills of New England in 2004. Since then, the couple has been touring extensively, and has released two CDs, the self-titled “Hungrytown” (2008) and “Any Forgotten Thing” (2011), both of which received high critical acclaim and much airplay in North America, Europe, and Australia.

Mark Pendleton, of the Las Cruces (NM) Sun-News says of Hungrytown, “Their music mixes the snow of their home in Vermont, the dew on the grass of a cool summer morning in the Appalachians, the hard scrabble grittiness and pluck of common folk the world over together with the melancholy of lost loves, broken hearts, and shattered dreams, distilling it into an intoxicating, hauntingly seductive blend that you always want more of. Ken and Rebecca’s multi-instrumental artistry’s range and depth is impressive, running from a shy lover’s soft, gentle caress to a hardened, bitter fist shaking against an evil fate, to a wry, ironic, self-mocking sense of humor. Their voices, each a thing of wonder in its own right, when combined completely bowl you over and by turn lift you to dizzy heights of joy and dash you to aching sadness. If you enjoy folk music with substance and style, your appetite for Hungrytown will never be satisfied.”
