Tim Eriksen & Susan Brearey: Pumpkintown

Join us at the Jean Cocteau Cinema as well celebrate music with Tim Eriksen and Susan Brearey! Tim Eriksen is an American musician, musicologist, and professor. He is the leader of the band Cordelia’s Dad, a solo artist, and was a performer and consultant for the award-winning soundtrack of the film Cold Mountain!

“A mysterious old trunk found in a Yankee attic, full of leatherbound tunebooks, letters, musical instruments, 8 track tapes, a handwritten sheaf of ballads and even an old magic lantern: an ancient projector, with a box of painted glass slides. Musician, Tim Eriksen and painter, Susan Brearey take you to Pumpkintown, unlocking the mysteries of the trunk and the curious multicultural history of the village itself.

Pumpkintown offers Americana through the looking glass, where the village is imaginary but the music is real – revealing an America that has never been simply black and white but evidences a deep-seated diversity. Be immersed in the sounds of a place that is at once imagined and deeply true: shape-note harmony by the first published Native American composer, fiery Scottish fiddle tunes, apocalyptic Afro-Celtic gospel, traditional and original songs of war, the sea, traveling, tragedy and love, that tie it all together.”
