After previously catching Parsonsfield at a private house concert in North Jersey, I fell in love with the band! Unfortunately no photos were allowed but that didn’t take away from the amazing atmosphere that was in the room when they started to play. The band falls into the category of blue-grass/folk which is one of my favorite genres so I thoroughly enjoyed the show! They also did some Christmas classics with their own folk twist which was a nice change from hearing the well-known Michael Buble. If you’re a fan of Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson, Elizabeth Cotten etc.,then I recommend checking them out!

“I’ve travelled the world and I think you’re the shortest person I’ve met”

Last Friday I saw Joseph Arthur, an artist with a strong following of 200,00 people and over 8 million listens on his Spotify account. He is a well-known and respected artist in the music industry and plays with Pearl Jam regularly.

During his show at Drew’s it was only him an his guitar. He would make a beat by patting his guitar, then play over that and continuously add melodies through a song. I’ve never seen anything like it before!

He’s definitely a character and one of the nicest artists I’ve met so far!

Arguably one of the best songs in the category of New Folk/Alternative.
