Project Description


Jessica Pearson with Graham Lindsey at OAFF 2018

Jessica Pearson is a Canadian born storyteller with a voice like melting honey on a summers eve. Accompanied by the melodic bowing of Pat Bigelow on the Stand Up Bass and the sweet fiddling of Maddy O’Regan, they bring to life tales of the past and express the beauty and heartbreak of the world today. Heading out on their third international tour of Ireland and the UK, Jessica Pearson and the East Wind are working hard on a new album to be released in 2020.

Jessica Pearson and friends will be performing at all of the Mayfair events. Come early and enjoy the music.

After the release of their debut EP ‘Grave and Garden Songs’ in 2017 to a sold out crowd at LIVE! On Elgin, Jessica Pearson and the East Wind have taken the stage at JunoFest, RBC’s Bluesfest, and the National Arts Centre, as well as played with Hillsburn, The East Pointers, The Lifers and Ten Strings and a Goat Skin! Being influenced by Great Big Sea, Brandi Carlile and Lori MacKenna, they have made a unique sound of their own!

Their music perfectly blends folk, roots and East Coast bluegrass. From a cappella tunes sung in the middle of the audience to recollections of growing up in Canada, Jessica Pearson and the East Wind will take you on a journey with their dynamic live shows and entertaining story telling.
