On the 25 April 2014, Vox Camerata had the opportunity to be invited to join Tim Eriksen and perform alongside him for A Tapestry Of Sacred Music, hosted by the Esplanade.
A short bio of Tim Eriksen – “Widely regarded as the best traditional American ballad singer of his generation, Tim Eriksen first came into international spotlight with his musical contributions to Anthony Minghella’s Oscar Winning movie Cold Mountain. He and his group The Trio de Pumpkintown present sacred music of the American Protestant traditions from New England and the Appalachian region and the period 1650-1850, performing on traditional instruments like the fiddle, frame drum and banjo. In a repertory where they explore the boundaries and intersections between American sacred and secular forms, the group presents well known songs of these traditions, like Wayfaring Stranger and Amazing Grace, as well as lesser-known pieces that are unique combinations of European, African and Native American influences found in the eastern United States and the Appalachian Mountains.”
Vox Camerata is glad to have the chance to perform with a world class musician! All the best and hope we’ll meet again soon Tim!
