“On stage, Parsonsfield will give you rich five-part harmonies one minute, sound like bluegrass on steroids the next, and then rock you over the head with unbearably cool and raucous Celtic rhythms. All with taste and class.” —No Depression
“They harmonize; they play saws, mandolins and pump organs; they back their songs with crickets and squeaking screen doors; they are boisterously youthful yet deftly sentimental…I fully expect to hear more from this band as the years go on.’
- David Vescey, The New York Times
Parsonsfield is a five-piece alt/folk band from Northampton, MA that infuses a rowdy, rock-’n'-roll spirit into its bluegrass and folk influences, blowing away any preconception of what you think banjos and mandolins should sound like.
