Jack Pearson and Friends

Bluegrass
Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Nashville native Jack Pearson plays like he was born with a six-string in his hand. His first break, a chance to tour with Lee Roy Parnell, came when he was barely old enough to drive. After a stint in Muscle Shoals, he took up an intense study of jazz, and in between gigs with towering soloists Jimmy Raney and Buddy DeFranco, he honed his Delta blues chops in a duo called The Nationals with longtime friend and collaborator William Howse. As a teenager, Pearson taught himself every note of both Duane Allman’s and Dickey Betts’ sinuous solos from At Fillmore East, and his discipline paid off when he was invited to join the Allman Brothers twice — first as a sub for Betts, then as a replacement for Warren Haynes when Gov’t Mule took off. These adventures are only the tip of the iceberg, not taking into account Pearson’s session playing, his sought-after guitar instruction, or his own solo material. Pearson is guaranteed to deliver a soulful cocktail of styles with self-effacing flair, as well as jaw-dropping technical feats that rival a certain Englishman who will appear at the Arena on Friday
