Townhall: The New Song
Philadelphia band Townhall's first album Live at the Point, released on their own label in 2001, was recorded at The Point in Bryn Mawr, PA, a venue where Garth Hudson and the Crowmatix have performed several times. One reviewer of the album claimed that "Townhall plays like The Band if they had listened to hip-hop. They sing like Van Morrison if he was in a better mood."
While Garth Hudson was in Bryn Mawr in October 2002, he visited RuffHouse studios (around the corner from The Point) and sat in with Townhall while they were recording their new album titled The New Song, released in January 2003. Garth appears on the final track of the album titled "Tomorrow's Lullaby," on which he plays accordian.
