Cordelia's Dad / Northampton Harmony (16) RE: Cordelia's Dad / Northampton Harmony 09 Jan 00

Northampton Harmony consists of two members of Cordelia's Dad, Tim Eriksen and Cath Oss, along with two other singers, Kelly House and Jeff Colby. They have a cd out called "The Hookes' Regular Sing", recorded in 1996 on Hazmat Records, HAZO47D. There are 21 cuts on it, from a wide assortment of shape-note books. Mostly it's done with just their 4 voices, but 4 cuts feature a larger group of singers. The extensive liner notes were written by Tim. You can write them at PO Box 38, Northampton, MA 01061. They also appear on a Tony Trishka and Skyline album called "Glory Shone Around", and tour at holiday time with them. Those are less conventional presentations, featuring Trishka's banjo along with the voices.

Is this the sort of information you needed, or were you interested in more general information about shape-note singing? A web site about that is at I have no idea how to do blue clicky things, so anybody else who wants to, feel free. Another web site, run by Warren Steele, is at Let me know if you want more info.
