Jack Pearson Bio:
Hi! I’m Jack Pearson. As long as I can remember I’ve been in love with the meaning of things. I’ve been busy delivering music/story experiences of imagination, spirit, folklore and history full-time for thirty years now. I play guitar, fiddle, 5-string banjo, mandolin, dobro and an assortment of small percussion instruments including my one-and-only amplified toy box lid. I’m a songwriter with one foot in our American folk tradition but the other joyfully lost in the landscape of imagination. I weave music with stories original and traditional and perform for kids, grown-ups and family groups in the Upper Midwest and around the country. I work often with K-6 kids in schools both as a performer and resident artist. I also work closely with churches and faith-based groups helping facilitate worship or doing a concert for the kids or families. Summer finds me as musician-in-residence at Mount Hermon Conference Center near Santa Cruz, California, but I live way up on the upper Mississippi in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I make good pancakes, love to read, and wear suspenders a lot. I’ve been married for over thirty years to Nancy and we have two cool kids: Peter and Kari.
