Hungrytown is the band name of celebrated musical duo Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson. Their deceptively simple compositions are rooted firmly in folk tradition. Listen closely to Rebecca’s finely crafted lyrics, painting pictures and telling stories. Hear beautiful singing and playing and harmonies from a musically gifted duo. And spend time with two of the nicest people we know.

“Hungrytown make folk music of astonishing delicacy and purity. If Rebecca is the nightingale, singing with a voice of captivating beauty, then Ken’s arrangements are a lacework of branches, a frame of natural beauty in itself. Contemporary American folk music is full of people trying to evoke times gone by and there seem to be almost as many ways of doing this as there are old-timey acts. Hungrytown have a distinctive slant on this whole idea and I think the quiet beauty of their music almost sounds like a prayer for calm in a febrile world.” – John Davy – Flyinshoes Review (UK)

“I love the sound of Rebecca Hall’s voice. There’s a sweetness and a worldly wisdom, in perfect balance.” – Roger McGuinn

“Rebecca Hall’s songs are uncannily like the timeless traditional songs that inspire her. Indeed, Hall’s debut brings to mind recordings of the late-’50s and early-’60s, with its spare, heart-felt simplicity.” – Sing Out!
