Tim Eriksen & the Trio de Pumpkintown
Star in the East: A Concert of Christmas Music
Tim Eriksen & The Trio de Pumpkintown return to the Bookmill for an evening of Christmas music as intimate as the home hearth and as clear as a winter’s night, bringing a fresh acoustic sound to seasonal standards and sing-along classics as well as rarely heard but stunning songs from the shape-note music repertoire and other early American sources.
Tim Eriksen transforms American tradition with his startling interpretations of old songs from New England and Southern Appalachia. He combines hair-raising vocals with inventive accompaniment on banjo, fiddle, and guitar, creating a distinctive hardcore Americana sound that ranges from the bare bones of solo unaccompanied singing to the lush, multi-layered arrangements on Josh Billings Voyage. Widely recognized as one of the best ballad singers in the world, Eriksen has performed and recorded with Jack White, Ralph Stanley, Elvis Costello, and Omar Sosa, and his film credits include the Cold Mountain soundtrack. He has appeared at the Academy Awards and Carnegie Hall. The New York Times praised his "stark songs and breakneck picking," and Toronto Star called him "one of the world's finest folk practitioners."
Tim is joined by Peter Irvine on percussion and Zoe Darrow on fiddle.
As always, food, drink and love available at the Lady Killigrew
