http://timeriksenmusic.com/ Tim Eriksen sings "Hicks' Farewell" on Mt. Pollux, Amherst, MA, in the shadow of Mt. Holyoke. I recorded this for my self titled first solo acoustic CD on appleseed recordings. I had known this song for a long time from the various shape note tunebooks it appears in, but started playing it after hearing Doc Watson, who presumably got it from the Southern Harmony one way or another. I never really payed attention to Doc's music until Cordelia's Dad opened for him at the Appalachian festival in southern Ohio ca. 1997. I'm not so interested in fast picking, but have come to love his straightforward singing. www.myspace.com/timeriksenmusic
