“Bringing the artists to the public school is a brilliant strategy for learning. I remember many of the participatory events from my own grade school days, fifty years ago. I think The Trio de Pumpkintown was greatly appreciated by the audience.”

— Norm Sizemore

“The performance was magnificent and thrilling.”

— Ann McGarity

“Arts Council of Tamworth brought Tim Eriksen just as our town is preparing to celebrate its 250th anniversary. I can’t think of a more appropriate musician to celebrate the complex history of this area’s music. I attended both the workshop and performance: at both, Tim Eriksen made us appreciate the turbulent, adventurous and apocalyptic forces that shaped the songs he performs. I left with new music from an older time, and a fascinating glimpse into our New England heritage. ”
