Tim Eriksen is a true preservationist of the American music tradition. His deep and soulful renditions of classic american folk ballads and shape note gospel strike a chord on the pull strings of any folk lovers heart. Focusing on classic tunes of the late 19th and early 20th century, his music echoes the gospel traditions of New England and the bare boned ballads of Southern Appalachia. If you’re laying in a ditch staring at the sky and death comes knocking on your door, truly Tim’s music would become your sountrack. You might know him from such soundtracks as, “Oh Brother Where Art Thou”, and “Cold Mountain”. Tim sings the music of my childhood, the gospel tunes and old timey songs my grandmother use to hum. Enjoy.
