Tim Eriksen is acclaimed for transforming American traditional music with his startling interpretations of old ballads, love songs, shape-note gospel and dance tunes from New England and Southern Appalachia. Tim combines hair-raising vocals with inventive accompaniment on banjo, fiddle, guitar and bajo sexto - a twelve string Mexican acoustic bass - creating a distinctive hardcore Americana sound that ranges across three solo albums of northern roots American music. Eriksen's compositions have also been featured in films including Billy Bob Thornton's Chrystal and the documentary Behold the Earth. Eriksen's other notable work includes contributions to Anthony Minghella's 2004 Oscar-winning film Cold Mountain and the 2010 Grammy-nominated album Across the Divide with Afro-Cuban world-jazz pianist Omar Sosa.
