Parsonsfield Celebrate New Album Tomorrow at Mercury Lounge

September 6th, 2016

Making rowdy, old-timey bluegrass- and folk-inspired music that’s earned them comparisons to the Avett Brothers, the Leverett, Mass., five-piece Parsonsfield—Chris Freeman (vocals and banjo), Antonio Alcorn (mandolin), Harrison “Whale” Goodale (bass), Erik Hischmann (drums) and Max Shakun (guitar)—have a brand-new album, Blooming Through the Black, coming out this Friday. And on Wednesday at Mercury Lounge, Parsonsfield (above, performing “Weeds or Wildflowers”) celebrate its release and kick off a new tour. Vaudeveillian folk-punk sextet Bella’s Bartok open the show.
