Common Ground on the Hill presents Tim Eriksen
Friday, November 7 at 8 PM in Fellowship Hall
Hailed as “among the world’s finest folk practitioners” (Toronto Star) and “the best ballad singer of his generation” (BBC Radio), Tim Eriksen has transformed American roots music with a sound which embraces shape note gospel, Southern Appalachian and Irish songs, and old New England murder ballads. He has collaborated on movie scores including the 2004 Oscar-winning film Cold Mountain, contributed to the 2010 Grammy-nominated world jazz album Across the Divide by Afro-Cuban artist Omar Sosa, performed at Carnegie Hall as a soloist in Evan Chambers’ symphonic work “The Old Buying Ground”, performed on “A Prairie Home Companion” and the Academy Awards, and more. He is the only musician to have shared the stage with both Kurt Cobain and Doc Watson, not to mention Jack White and Ralph Stanley. This young musician truly carries the traditions of roots music into the new age.

The Woodbrook Players present “The Man of La Mancha,” the classic musical by Mitch Leigh, Joe Darrion and Dale Wasserman. This play-within-a-play, tells the story of Cervantes, imprisoned and awaiting trial by the Inquisition. He uses his tale of Don Quixote as a defense during a mock trial for the prisoners. Cervantes transforms himself and his servant into Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, acting out the story with the other prisoners. Filled with some of Broadway’s best-loved music, “The Man of La Mancha” sweeps the audience on a grand adventure in search of the “impossible dream.”
