Parsonsfield & Sawyer Fredericks
Friday, October 26, 2018 at 8PM at Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington, NY
Parsonsfield is a western Massachusetts based quintet praised for making "the most jubilant and danceable indie roots music this side of the Carolinas" (NPR). Catch them onstage any night and the band's joy is palpable. They trade instruments, share microphones, and shoot each other big grins. They sing in tight multi-part harmonies, their voices blending like they've been doing this together all their lives. That's because Parsonsfield is a family band, not by birth but by choice.
Parsonsfield have been added to Folk Pop, Fresh Folk, Roots Rising and Indie Bluegrass playlists on Spotify, alongside artists like Joseph, The Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, and The Head And The Heart.
Sawyer Fredericks, the 18 year old Singer-songwriter hailing from his family's farm in central New York State, is fast establishing himself as an authentic, original, Americana artist with an old soul. His deep, beyond-his-years lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, and powerful live performances have attracted an ever growing number of devoted fans of all ages, selling out shows throughout the US.
As a folk/blues singer-songwriter, who cut his teeth at local farmers markets, open mics, and iconic New York venues like Caffe Lena, the Towne Crier Cafe, and The Bitter End, Sawyer seemed an unlikely match for reality tv, but quickly won over broad audiences with his genuine delivery and unique arrangements of classic songs, going on to win season 8 of NBC's The Voice.
