Robert Hunter Brings Music and Stories to the Prallsville Mills

The Prallsville Mills in Stockton will be the setting for a special performance and fundraiser by acclaimed musician turned novelist, Robert Hunter on Thursday, June 14th. Hunter’s Relapse and Revival Tour celebrate the singer-songwriter, poet and now novelist’s first novel, Relapse:  A Love Story(Beaver’s Pond Press).  

Relapse is a love story at its best and a wild ride at its drunkest, Relapse careens through shaman-led weddings, car heists that lead to strange prophesies, and the inner workings of a mind rife with possibility and absolutely unaffected by the moonshine. Is it relapse, or is it revival? This story filled with off-beat characters surrounding its not-often-sober protagonist, Rob Wildhide takes readers on a trip through Maine that won’t soon be forgotten!

The novel and tour are inspired by his wife, Becky, who insisted he move ahead with both projects despite her fight with an aggressive cancer. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation in support of cancer programs and services at Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center. Becky is now in remission. The couple are using this nationwide tour to celebrate life, love, and the madness of it all.

Robert Hunter is a Nashville recording artist best known for his unique brand of lyrical alt-country-rock. Hunter’s first two EPs (Afterglow and Outta My Mind) were celebrated critically and described as “magnetic” and “hard wiring, after a single listen.” He will perform songs from his latest recording, ‘Revival’.

The Relapse and Revival Tour is being brought to this corner of the world on June 14 at 6pm in collaboration with Indie booksellers, The Book Garden in Frenchtown. Tickets are $35, include a copy of Hunter’s novel, Relapse: A Love Story, and a portion of proceeds will support the Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation and the historic Prallsville Mills. Purchase tickets now.
