The Ericksons

One of the top ten best Minnesota albums of the year

CHRIS RIEMENSCHNEIDER, Star Tribune June 2013


“There has been a lot of buzz about The Ericksons lately.
It’s the subtly pervasive darkness and beautiful harmonies
that really stand out... You can sense the sisters’ relationship
and closeness in how they harmonize with one another.
Heart-breaking, and sometimes heart-warming
harmonies form the base of their “haunting folk” sound.”
-
Rift Magazine

The Ericksons, a folk sister duo, express a deep emotional core in their songs that draws listeners into a journey traveled through grief, acceptance and love. Bethany Valentini and Jenny Kapernick will perform at Crossings for the first time.

The performers wear the name of Valentini’s late husband, artist Lee Erickson, who encouraged Kapernick to “do your music,” even as he came to the end of his life. The sisters found that writing and performing music was a way to explore and accept their grief, love and support each other.

They moved to Brooklyn and began playing at open mics, where their floating, folk and blues harmonies won them fans. The Ericksons released their first record in 2008, then returned to the Midwest and released a second album, “Don’t Be Scared, Don’t Be Alarmed,” in 2010. These first records, with their picked guitars and string, their animal, natural harmonies and deep melancholy, hinted at great loss.

That great loss, and the move to acceptance and love is key to the lush new release from The Ericksons, “The Wild.”  Rooted in Americana, with the addition of haunting pedal steel instrumentation, the duo perform with voices reminiscent of Emmylou Harris.
