Son of Town Hall: 2017

Ben Walker of London, England, and David Berkeley of Santa Fe, NM, struck up a friendship when they were booked together on a UK tour. They decided to form a transatlantic duo, which they named Son of Town Hall after a junk raft that successfully crossed the Atlantic in the 1990s.
Taking the seafaring image farther, they assumed the personas of Victorian gents making their own crossing to the new world. With their tight harmonies, it's like Simon and Garfunkel on the high seas.
They arrived in Victorian garb, complete with derby and top hat, for this entertaining session.
