Tall Heights and Parsonsfield (formerly Poor Old Shine)
- This event has passed.
This event will take place in our Downstairs venue with mostly standing room. For those that require seating, please call 202.408.3100 in advance.
The duo of Tim Harrington and Paul Wright create captivating vocal harmonies driven by a folk-inspired accompaniment of cello and acoustic guitar. Tall Heights got their start playing for spare change in Boston’s Faneuil Hall Marketplace in the summer of 2010. In three short years, they’ve played hundreds of shows, headlined packed listening rooms across the country, showcased at South By Southwest Music Festival, and shared stages with national acts like David Wilcox, Ryan Montbleau, Andrew Belle, Lori McKenna, and many more.
For the pair’s debut full-length effort, Man of Stone, Tall Heights hit the home studio, sinking deeper into the vast world they’ve meticulously built for two. After two powerful EPs, there has been a growing cry for more from these young artists, and Tall Heights delivers with an LP of grand vision and scale.
Parsonsfield is a roots band with a grassroots ethos. The Connecticut quintet prizes the human element that underpins their music, from songwriting to recording to album design and even choice of record label: Parsonsfield releases its self-titled debut studio LP, recorded with Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Joy Kills Sorrow), November 5, 2014 on Signature Sounds.
