DOVER- On Saturday, July 13, at 7 pm, the Dover Free Library’s Centennial continues with musical guests Hungrytown and Kyle Carey. In addition, the Friends of the Dover Library will present a plaque of the US Constitution to the Dover Free Library in memory of Gloria Levine. This event is free and open to the public.

Hungrytown is the musical and married duo of Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson. They have released two highly acclaimed CDs, “Hungrytown” (2008) and “Any Forgotten Thing” (2011), both of which continue to receive much airplay on folk and Americana stations worldwide. Rebecca and Ken tour full time throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, and are now making their first forays into New Zealand. Their songs have been performed by many other artists, including Nashville songwriting legend David Olney and bluegrass veterans, the Virginia Ramblers. Hungrytown’s music has also been featured on several television shows, including the Independent Film Channel’s hit series, “Portlandia.“

The ingredients of Carey’s music include the songs of the American folk anthology; influences of Irish, Scottish, and Cape Breton traditional music; and the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill. It is best described by Jeremy Searle of R2 Magazine: “Finally released in Europe after an album launch in the US and Canada, the debut album from Alaska-born and extensively-traveled Kyle Carey is, quite simply, a delight. Drawing from both the American and British folk traditions, the songs, including some very fine originals, are beautifully crafted and performed. ‘Magical’ is the mot juste for this album. Assured, confident, charming and irresistible, it sticks to the CD player like glue, as does the finger to the Repeat button.”
