    When not performing, this retro-folk music duo is known as Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, and you will need to go a long way to find a more talented and likeable couple. Their music mixes the snow of their home in Vermont, the dew on the grass of a cool summer morning in the Appalachians, and 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. Hungrytown has released two CDs, the self-titled 'Hungrytown' (2008) and 'Any Forgotten Thing' (2011), both of which have received high critical acclaim and much airplay in North America, Europe and Australia. Hungrytown tours both the United States and abroad. Their recent overseas travels have included the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Finland. On their home turf, Rebecca and Ken tour the country in the notorious Blue Meanie. This remarkable, fuel-efficient, solar-paneled and, well, blue customized camper van was designed by Ken to serve as a fully-equipped, four-season home, office, studio and Conestoga wagon for their instruments and sound system - all in under 22 feet! Louis Leeman, an active member of the New England music scene for three decades, is a singer, guitarist, and songwriter who resides in Swansea, MA. During this time, Louis has had the opportunity to play with many talented musicians in a variety of musical settings and styles. As an opening act for Tom Rush, Leon Russell, Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett of Little Feat, Savoy Brown, Darrel Scott, Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriquez, Louis has had the opportunity to play to audiences expecting the best. With roots in rock, folk, blues and country, Louis has been influenced by all types of music. As Louis says, "I listen to all kinds of music and it filters through my personality and slightly warped perspective. I play my own songs and songs by artists whose work I admire. I try to sound like me."

As Louis says, "I listen to all kinds of music and it filters through my personality and slightly warped perspective. I play my own songs and songs by artists whose work I admire. I try to sound like me." Michael Troy was born and raised in the rough-and-tumble mill town of Fall River, Mass. In many ways, his life reflects the lives of the hard-working common folk who populate this part of New England. Having spent parts of his own life as a mill worker, fisherman, laborer and carpenter, and most of his adult years as a husband and father, Michael has traveled many paths, and the experience and wisdom he's gleaned along the way echoes through his music. A magical storyteller with a gift for melody, a deep rich voice, excellent finger-picking skills and the ability to compose outstanding stanzas of substance, Michael's plaintive ballads speak of the hills and mills of Fall River and of childhood dreams not quite forgotten in the adult quest to make an honest living.
