Subject: Tim Eriksen
Hey, this Tim Eriksen guy is good! You can find a number of YouTube videos of his songs here (click). There's also a generous selection of sample recordings at his website (click). Tim Eriksen's style reminds me of Ken Schatz, very intelligent interpretations of songs with a bit of a hard edge to the singing style. I wasn't familiar with Tim, but I see he was a member of Cordelia's Dad, a group I like quite a bit. I came across one comment that called Cordelia's Dad "the Steeleye Span of Appalachian music."
