“A mix of infectious Appalachian anthems and rustic, handcrafted ballads. It is a pop-ish bluegrass fury of well-worn guitars, danceable drums, and traded vocals balanced evenly with the haunting sounds of three-part harmonies… ultimately, it is the precision and polish of musicianship well beyond their years that pulls the audience fully in.” -Pop Matters

“Parsonsfield introduces some of the most jubilant and danceable indie roots music this side of the Carolinas.” – Folk Alley

Parsonsfield is a five-piece alt/folk band from Northampton, MA that infuses a rowdy, rock-‘n’-roll spirit into its bluegrass and folk influences, blowing away any preconception of what you think banjos and mandolins should sound like.

Parsonsfield—Chris Freeman (vocals, banjo), Antonio Alcorn (mandolin), Max Shakun (vocals, pump organ, guitar), Harrison Goodale (bass), Erik Hischmann (drums)— has toured steadily since their debut in 2010. In 2013 they recorded their debut album Poor Old Shine (Signature Sounds Recordings), produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive). The critics were impressed, with David Vescey from the New York Times noting, “I fully expect to hear more from this band as the years go on.” and the U.K.’s Maverick Magazine calling it “A blistering energetic debut.” During the winter of 2013–14 the band wrote and performed an original score in the acclaimed production of The Heart of Robin Hood at Harvard’s American Repertory Theater, and they will continue the production for a four-month Broadway tryout in Canada in winter 2014–15.
