From Calgary Canada comes one of the brightest and best bands you've Never heard of. Pear weaves an infectious blend of pop/country and roots music with an extremely energetic live show. They have built an impressive fan base throughout North America, Asia, Europe and Scandinavia and have just recently come back from their second tour of China (2010). They helped form what the Walt Disney Corporation has dubbed "The hottest fiddle show in the world" and instrumentally (and vocally), they have backed some of the biggest stars on stage and in session in the pop/country/folk and world music idioms. A set by PEAR? It has been described as "Fairport Convention taking a run at Rush". -Peter North (Freelance Journalist) Vocalists, Instrumentalists, Educators and Pedagogues. Pear is young and sexy. Pear is fresh and different. Pear is prime for the picking. Now, Take A Bite!!
