Legion Arts kicks off a new collaboration with Groundswell Youth Arts Space, while welcoming back to Cedar Rapids one of our favorite young songwriters, Santa Fe’s David Berkeley. The cult songwriter and author recently teamed up with London’s Ben Parker to form the duo Son of Town Hall. With offbeat humor, and a little theatrical magic, the two musicians present themselves as a duo born of the high seas, where they traveled together on a raft, crafting harmonies and writing songs about wonder and woe. The presentation may be hilarious, but the harmonies are exquisite. The duo’s sound has been called “light and plucky, purposely timeless yet anachronistic, a sort of aural steampunk” (Jennifer Levin, Santa Fe New Mexican). Popmatters said of their most recent CD, “Despite its hushed essence, it’s an amazingly beautiful collection of tracks.” Son of Town Hall is the first group to be presented by Legion Arts at Groundswell, a newly renovated venue and gathering space overseen by the community development organization Matthew 25.

Groundswell is located at:
201 3rd Ave SW
Cedar Rapids, IA 52404
