    Tim Eriksen&Cordelia's Dad, The Silks, The Vox Hunters and more; Lily Pads 5th Anniversary Show A very special night of music featuring Tim Eriksen and the legendary Cordelia's Dad, local trad phenoms The Vox Hunters, the Whale Guitar, and many surprises. 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. We can think of no better bands to highlight the sonic beauty that makes our space unique. Fretless banjo, fiddle, Uillean pipes, concertina, Tim playing Rhode Island's own creation, the Whale Guitar, Sacred Harp singing..... Come celebrate five years of concerts at Lily Pads. This will be special.
