Tim Eriksen sings through his banjo head

Tim Eriksen, an alt-folk (and sometimes punk) Massachusetts musician sings and plays Amazing Grace on the banjo:

If you want to hear and see more, here's Eriksen singing in the snow and playing fiddle amidst the sounds of crickets and laughing chidren.
Thanks to Tony (aka "Bede") for the link and introduction to this music by a former member of the band Cordelia's Dad. You may have heard Eriksen performing "Am I Born to Die?" from the Cold Mountain soundtrack.

The music of Cold Mountain was undoubtedly the best part. That, and the rather unexpectedly adorable Jack White.

I had to look up Jack White, as I didn't remember him (but then, I didn't watch the entire film). In appearance, he reminds me of a cross between Andy Serkis and Christina Ricci.

I've never seen Cold Mountain, but I loved the Amazing Grace rendition! I'll have to show that one to my dad.
