Boasting an impressive variety of instrumentation and three unforgettable voices, Pearl and the Beard routinely bring down the house with their foot-stomping anthems and soaring harmonies. The soulful trio hailing from Brooklyn made the trip to Columbia for the last two Fests and have quickly become crowd favorites. Here Corey Ranesberg captures the group playing their song “Reverend” in the music nook of our 2012 box office.
There are a bunch of great Pearl and the Beard videos on YouTube. In this one from the Subway Sessions the group plays their commanding song “Oh Death” for passersby underneath New York.
The band’s latest music video for the beautiful “40K” debuted just last month.
