Tim Eriksen – Musician

Tim EriksenTim Eriksen “…is among the most influential figures” writes Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe, “…rejuvenating American traditional music. Best known for his haunting music for the film ‘Cold Mountain,’ he helped ignite the string band revival with his darkly quirky Western Mass. group Cordelia’s Dad, and focused fresh attention on 19th-century shape note singing with Northampton Harmony. A former punk-rocker, his musicianship is confidently state-of-the-art, but his intent is never to modernize or gussy up the old music. Instead, he uses savvy arrangement and recording techniques to focus modern ears on what is most raw, earthy, and above all, human in ancient ballads and fiddle tunes.”
