The multi-talented Tim Eriksen – perhaps the only musician to have played with both Kurt Cobain and Doc Watson (although not at the same time) – led his new “hardcore Americana” band, the Trio de Pumpkintown into WAMC-FM’s The Linda in Albany last month, as the latest installment of the American Roots Series, hosted by Michael Eck, who also served as the opening act.

The former frontman of such pioneering bands as Cordelia’s Dad (folk-noise), Northampton Harmony (shape-note quartet) and Zabe i Babe (Bosnian folk and pop), Eriksen has performed at the Academy Awards, “Prairie Home Companion” and both CBGB’s and Carnegie Hall, but this was his debut at The Linda, where he was joined by his Pumpkintown bandmates Zoë Darrow (fiddle, vocals) and Peter Irvine (percussion, vocals).
