olk/rock quintet, Town Meeting, drop “New Hampshire,” from their upcoming EP,Geography: Part 1, due out this summer. Having shared the stage with Bob Dylan, Third Eye Blind, Tancred, and Jill Andrews, Town Meeting will be appearing at an evening with The Avett Brothers on June 1 on The Magic Hat Stage. With their sophomore release, Town Meeting continue to carve out their place alongside the greats in their genre.
Influenced by a wide range of musical acts from Dawes to Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, the group was formed in 2014 by brothers Luke (vocals/guitar) and Russ Condon (vocal/cajon). Dean Adrien(vocals/lead guitar), formerly of Orphan, joined in April of 2013. With years of music experience under his belt alongside the likes of Jonathan Edwards, Tom Rush and several others from the Boston Folk scene. Tim Cackett (guitar/bass/mandolin player) joined the band in October 2013. Tim had spent several years prior playing guitar in the various hardcore bands (Anchorlines, Hope Prevails) and his solo acoustic folk project, Poor Soul. Brendan “Babe” Condon (vocals/harmonica/percussion), the youngest brother, rounded out the group’s vocal harmonies in 2014. Soon after the lineup was solidified, the band played shows with Sturgill Simpson, Willie Nelson and Old Crow Medicine Show and dropped their debut, If I Die (2016). Over the past year, the five have been putting the finishing touches on theGeography series.
Stay tuned as Town Meeting release more material over the coming months and hit the road this summer, touring the Northeast in support of Geography: Part 1. The band will be following up with Part 2 this Fall along with additional tour dates.
