A mysterious old trunk found in a Yankee attic, full of leatherbound tunebooks, letters, musical instruments, 8 track tapes, a handwritten sheaf of ballads and even an old magic lantern: an ancient projector, with a box of painted glass slides. Musician Tim Eriksen, his longtime musical collaborator Peter Irvine (from the days of Cordelia’s Dad, Zabe Babe andTrio de Pumpkintown) and painter Susan Brearery take you to Pumpkintown, unlocking the mysteries of the trunk and the curious multicultural history of the village itself.
Pumpkintown offers Americana through the looking glass, where the village is imaginary but the music is real – revealing an America that has never been simply black and white but evidences a deep-seated diversity. Be immersed in the sounds of a place that is at once imagined and deeply true: shape-note harmony by the first published Native American composer, fiery Scottish fiddle tunes, apocalyptic Afro-Celtic gospel, traditional and original songs of war, the sea, traveling, tragedy and love, that tie it all together.
