Keith Pearson, front man of the Keith Pearson Band, first learned his craft during the classic Folk renaissance of the mid-60s. Throughout the 70s, he toured, and performed on radio as a solo singer/songwriter, both abroad and on the Folk circuit, as well as leading the original Treacle Line and the Right Hand Band.
Even as a solo performer Keith can hold an audience enthralled with his humour, voice and songs. He achieved near-legendary status in Australia, where he worked regularly from the 1990s until 2008 with his band Treacle Line.
Throughout the 90s Keith also toured the hugely popular Bluegrass-influenced band Coup de Grass, (with co-founder Phil Milner, James Darby, Tim Jellis, Andrew Noyes and latterly Tony Buch) in the UK, Europe and Australia, gaining huge popularity until health issues within the band brought about its end in 2013.
The Keith Pearson Band, featuring Americana/Country, evolved from Coup de Grass and the Trio, is the latest venture and it's strength lies in its original material and beautiful harmonies. With Phil Milner on bass, J.B. on guitar/synth guitar, banjo/synth banjo, bouzouki; Nigel Fear on pedal steel and Andrew Martin on cajon they have an expanding repertoire of great material and are rapidly becoming club favourites.
Keith and Phil are currently working with Tim Jellis as the Keith Pearson Trio. This reunion has been welcomed by the few audiences who have managed to see them, and delighted fans of Keith's beautiful folk ballads.
