Vulturetown Arts Presents: Parsonsfield, Hanging Hills, and The Can Kickers
On December 13th we'll gather for an event in support of Vulturetown Arts.  Vulturetown Arts is a creative group of Willimantic residents working towards providing a permanent venue for music, film, visual and performing arts. Our goal is to entertain and inspire, and to promote a creative community. Three homegrown bands (Parsonsfield, Hanging Hills, and The can Kickers) will join local food and beer vendors for a uniquely Willimantic event.  

Parsonsfield is a five-piece Americana band from Connecticut that infuses a rowdy, rock-'n'-roll spirit into its bluegrass and folk influences, blowing away any preconception of what you think banjos and mandolins should sound like.
Parsonsfield - Chris Freeman (vocals, banjo), Antonio Alcorn (mandolin), Max Shakun (vocals, pump organ, guitar), Harrison Goodale (bass), Erik Hischmann (drums)has toured steadily since their debut in 2010. In 2013 they recorded their debut album Poor Old Shine (Signature Sounds Recordings), produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive). The critics were impressed, with David Vescey from the New York Times noting, "I fully expect to hear more from this band as the years go on." and the U.K.'s Maverick Magazine calling it "A blistering energetic debut." During the winter of 201314 the band wrote and performed an original score in the acclaimed production of The Heart of Robin Hood at Harvard's American Repertory Theater, and they will continue the production for a four-month Broadway tryout in Canada in winter 201415. Their new E.P., Afterparty (also produced by Kassirer and released on Signature Sounds) is available August 19.

Hanging Hills is a folk rock band from Willimantic, CT that is becoming an integral part of the growing scene in the state's quiet corner. They craft songs that are heavily rooted in the past while maintaining a steady foothold in the present, constantly bridging the gap between nostalgia and innocent wonder. Hanging Hills is one of the most talented up-and-coming groups in Connecticut, and always ready to put on a quality, passionate performance. Their debut full length, The Great Divide, is out now.

The Can Kickers are an old time band with drums. They formed in 2000 and have done over 700 shows in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe. Dan Thompson plays fiddle, Doug Schaefer plays drums, and Daniel Spurr plays banjo, guitar, and sings.
