Shivering Timbers:  In 2014 they were voted Best Musician/Band in Akron Empire, and 2nd Best Local Band (second to The Black Keys) in Akron Life Magazine.

Join what the Nashville Scene compares to “P.J. Harvey fronting the Bad Seeds on a shadowy corner of Sesame Street…

Shivering Timbers, a fast-emerging indie trio boasting ethereal Americana harmonies and bluesy rock sensibilities. They’ll be performing live on the Hamilton Village Green on Thursday, August 13th at 7pm.

The trio calls Akron, Ohio home, and both their performance style and the subject matter of their songs tips a hat to their Rust Belt home. Their songs are wistful, curious, sparse, and haunting like the profile of a steel mill long-shuttered. In 2010, the group released its first album, a collection of fractured fairy tales and dark folk songs called We All Started in the Same Place. Sing Sing followed in 2012, and in 2014, Shivering Timbers was voted second best local band in Akron Life Magazine (ok so the Black Keys were first…that’s some pretty stiff competition!).

Enjoy an evening of music in a beautiful park setting! Come early with a picnic, or check out the local eateries. Bring a blanket or lawn chair. FREE! Our rain location is the Colgate Inn on the village green.

For more than a decade, Arts in the Park has provided area residents with an opportunity to enjoy free live music and participate in the arts community in the heart of downtown Hamilton. Hamilton Arts in the Park is presented by the Village of Hamilton and co-presented by the Earlville Opera House. The Village of Hamilton is grateful for funds from the Decentralization Program. The Decentralization Program is a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered by CNY Arts in Cortland, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, and Oswego counties. These funds are made possible with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Shivering Timbers is Sarah Benn, Jayson Benn, joined by Daniel Kshywonis, musicians who call Akron, Ohio home. Our story developed when we — Sarah and Jayson Benn — started singing and crafting songs for our then-infant daughter. As she grew the music began to take shape, and a band was born. Our music was discovered by our friend Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) when we were invited to perform at his birthday party. The first album was subsequently recorded at Auerbach’s Akron studio, a collection of home-spun dark folk songs and fractured fairy tales called “We All Started in the Same Place”.
