Idumea /

Sacred Harp Singing: "Idumea, S.M."
Shot with a Flip Video Ultra in a dimly lit 19th century church house. Not much to look at, but the idea was mainly to capture the haunting, beautiful sounds of the Sacred Harp singing. This singing was on the grounds of the Burritt Museum on Monte Sano in Huntsville, AL, on a chilly February night.

Idumea- Eliza Carthy/Tim Eriksen
First song in the second set of "Murder, Misery and Goodnight" at the Sage Gateshead Summertyne Americana Festival last Friday. It was a lot of fun in a great venue, and lots of fun to play in the round with Kristin Hersch (Throwing Muses), Howe Gelb (Giant Sand), The Handsome Family and "house band" David Coulter (musical director) and Neil Harland on bass. Shot by Magdalena Zapedowska Eriksen.
