Hungrytown to kick off Jamaica's music series

JAMAICA — Jamaica Community Arts presents the celebrated acoustic duo Hungrytown to kick off this year's Jamaica Town Hall Presents series on June 21, 7 p.m. Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson of Hungrytown recently returned from a six-week tour of Great Britain and Germany, following a four-month tour of the American south and southwest.

The West Townshend locals have been performing professionally for nearly 15 years. Hungrytown's songs and music have appeared in numerous television programs, including IFC's Portlandia, Comedy Central's The Daily Show and Neftlix's new comedy, Lady Dynamite; as well as various documentaries and major sporting events ranging from NASCAR to Hockey Night in Canada.

Their third and latest album, "Further West," made the top 10 on the American Folk DJ charts for two months, and at least 14 "Best of the year" lists. "Not only is this one of the best albums of 2015, it's one of the best of the decade," proclaimed New York Music Daily.

The Jamaica Town Hall is located at 3735 Route 30. Admission is $10.
