Event Description

Pearl has been playing the blues for over 50 years. He was introduced to the blues by Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry. Texas Guitar giants Lightnin' Hopkins, and Mance Lipscomb taught him to play, often inviting him to accompany them onstage. He continues to perform much of their material and styles, with his own innovations. Pearl had a similar relationship with slide master Mississippi Fred MacDowell.
He has also taken the bandstand with Big Mama Thornton, Freddie King, Albert Collins, Johnny Shines and Big Walter Horton, Willie Dixon, Big Joe Turner, Lowell Fulson, Papa John Creach, Charles Brown, Koko Taylor, Harmonica Fats, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King with Stevie Ray Vaughan, and more. He brings that experience as well into his acoustic performances.Pearl shares the stage with bassist/producer Mike Barry who is a perfect match to set the groove for the tunes they perform

The following is a review of Bernie's third Live at Boulevard Music recording "Sittin' On the Right Side of the Blues" recorded in mid 2011.
“…Pearl’s music and voice evoke the unpretentious, truth-telling qualities of the blues. The sparse arrangements that grace this 15-song set only heighten the soulful and spiritual nature of the music. Pearl’s guitar virtuosity is evident, whether he's playing lead, rhythm, or slide guitar…his version of (Son House’s) Shetland Pony Blues would make the old master proud"
Stephen A. King, Living Blues Magazine
