Fox and Bones Live at Town Hall @ Seabrook Town Hall
Dec 30 @ 7:00 pm

Fresh off of their first European Tour, catch Portland’s Fox and Bones live at Seabrook Town Hall.

Fox and Bones is a conceptual folk collaboration between American songwriters Sarah Vitort and Scott Gilmore based in Portland, Oregon. Both artists in their own rite (Sarah Wild and The Watch, Just People), the pair had an instant spark when they met, which quickly translated to an electric songwriting chemistry. The duo combines lush two part harmonies and a complex, heartwarming lyrical landscape with soft-spoken yet rich musical accompaniment. Live, they draw their audience in with their quirky banter and adorable onstage chemistry, creating – and inspiring in their fans – an archetype for true love in the modern world.

The Town Hall bar will be open for those over 21, all ages welcome, doors will open at 6:30PM.
