Tuesday, August 3, Cordelia's Dad rock reunion at Sidmouth Festival in England. Tim Eriksen, Peter Irvine, Cath Oss and guests plug in for a retrospective electric set. Tim is also doing some solo sets earlier in the festival (see Tim Eriksen).
For twenty years, Cordelia's Dad has been an ongoing series of musical experiments. Beginning with an unabashed punk rock fury, and evolving into the tender, intricate acoustic songs of Spine, the common threads have been powerful harmony singing, haunting melodies, and insistent rhythm. Founders Tim Eriksen and Peter Irvine, along with long-time member Cath Oss, have travelled throughout North America and Europe, melding their passionate interpretations of early American hymns, ballads, and fiddle and banjo tunes with their own contemporary pop music sensibilities. Cordelia's Dad taps into deep veins of American experience and musical tradition, forging a sound that is just as surprising as it is familiar.
