Hilton Park plays their unique folk music in Brandon

BRANDON — Hilton Park is an Americana/folk trio with a unique sound from southern Maine made up of father, Bruce Hilton, youngest son Connor and close musical partner, friend and neighbor Gregg Pannier, a classically trained organist and piano virtuoso. The trio is making the return trip to Brandon this coming Mother’s Day weekend to perform once again at Brandon Music on May 11.
Although the trio started out writing and playing music together for their own enjoyment, within a very short time (eight months to be exact) they found themselves recognized by the New England Music Awards (NEMA) as one of the best roots acts in New England and by the Boston Examiner as the band that has “reinvented acoustic.”
Today Hilton Park is renowned for being virtuoso musicians, styling traditional folk/country instruments with fresh and original tunes. Their stage show includes up to 10 acoustic instruments, (six and 12 string guitars, dobro, mandolin, bouzokki, Weissenborn and dulcimer) played skillfully by the father and son duo with musical partner playing virtuoso piano.
Hilton Park has a beautifully crafted melodic voice. Their harmonic finesse, likened to Crosby, Stills and Nash, authentic lyrics and good song craft continues to enthrall audiences, putting many listeners on the edge of their seats. “Every song tells a story, and there’s a story behind every song” is their mantra. And they continue to weave stories into classic melodies and lyrics.
Since the Hilton Park sound was established in 2013 the trio has continued to release albums and win awards. In 2015 they won the NEMA for “Best in State: Maine” and in 2017 their third album “Moments” was nominated for “Album of the Year” (their fourth nomination to date) and their song “Stupid Game” won the Academia Award for “Best Song” in the Folk Singer / Songwriter category 2017.
See for yourself, and bring Mom, on Saturday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for an additional $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.
