Tim Eriksen, who has the distinction of being a triple threat (musician, musicologist, and educator), was born in Massachusetts and has devoted much of his life to exploring the region’s folklore. He has revived old ballads, delved deep into the tradition of shape-note singing, started the world’s largest Sacred Harp convention, and traces his roots to a folk-punk band he started in the late 1980s called Cordelia’s Dad. He performs at Club Passim on Sunday.
