An Episcopal church ended up being the perfect venue to see Canadian folk act Timber Timbre’s SXSW performance. Located on a hill just a few blocks away from the crowds of 6th Street, for a brief hour, the St. David’s Bethel Hall transported us all away into the magical, moody world of Timber Timbre.
