Craig Hornby Presents Alternative American Folk Roots Star TIM ERIKSEN in concert.
A Night of Lost Tunes, Burning Spirit and Dark Roots...
Years ago, singer, musician, and scholar Tim Eriksen pulled a 19th Century hymnal out of a bin. He’d always been fascinated with the scraps of history he’d found growing up: the arrowheads or centuries-old bottles washed up on the beach, the hints of long-gone people’s experience lingering in graveyards and forests. That hymnal—and other junk shop discoveries—quietly urged him to invigorate old tunes, the overplayed songs and the lost melodies of the rural American East. In Eriksen’s able imagination, they become "a landscape of passion, loss, and banked fire".
The alternative American folk roots star, as featured in the Oscar-winning film 'Cold Mountain', returns to Saltburn following his debut sell out show in 2010.
Tim is widely regarded as the best traditional American ballad singer of his generation. As the title of his new album 'Banjo, Fiddle and Voice' suggests he is also an accomplished banjo and fiddle player not to mention bajo-sexto and guitar.
Saltburn is proud to welcome back Tim and is sure the sea view and fish 'n' chips will make again make a big impression on him as he will on the audience.
Support comes from Cath and Phil Tyler, an anglo-American duo who also played in Tim's band 'Cordelia's Dad' in the 1990s.
