Historic Deerfield, Harvest Concert
October 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Pumpkintown: Songs, Stories and Magic Lantern Projections From a New England Village
Historic Deerfield musician-in-residence Tim Eriksen presents “Pumpkintown”, with paintings and projections by Susan Brearey, percussion and sound design by Peter Irvine and live gravestone carving by Allison Steel, unlocking the mysteries of the trunk and the curious multicultural history of the village, a place near to and not unlike Historic Deerfield.
“Pumpkintown” offers a fresh take on history and American music, from a region rarely associated with a regional sound: New England (Northern Appalachia?). Beyond the truck stops and broken hearts of “Americana,” “Pumpkintown” reveals a reality that has never been just a faded, black-and-white photograph but evidences a deeply multicultural dynamism where history, imagination, dreams, and genealogies collide.
Renowned musician and scholar Tim Eriksen performs historic Pioneer Valley music celebrating the harvest and the seasons.
