Pettersen's new release "I Curse the River of Time: A Norwegian American Tale" is showcased in a beautiful art book that tells a fascinating tale of Pettersen's roots in the Arctic circle of Norway. Inspired by time spent in Norway, the music draws on Norwegian literature for inspiration (the song Psalm at Journey's End draws characters from Eric Fosnes Hansen's book of the same name, and Siste Reis combines the American genre of murder ballads with the story of a young Norwegian girl who trusts in the wrong stranger) coupled with observations from his travels. The music is hauntingly beautiful with instrumentation that combines the best of folk and Americana. This unique package comes in a slipcase and signed numbered limited edition of 1200 copies. All pre-orders via this website may receive a free download of "Happening:A Movement in 12 Acts" featuring Freedy Johnston, Walter Egan, Mary Gauthier, Matthew Ryan and others. It's Ed's free jazz operatta ode to the 99%.
