Erik Pearson

Erik Pearson has been immersed in music of all kinds since he was a child in Easton, Pennsylvania, where he studied classical flute and music theory, sung in choirs, and played in rock bands. In the late 1980’s at Oberlin College/Conservatory of Music he studied Music Composition and Cultural Anthropology, and was also drawn to Carnatic Music of Southern India and to his growing interest in the banjo and Old Time American Music, a passion which has remained a constant in his life.

Since moving to San Francisco in 1990 he has made over 30 records/CDs and performed with a multitude of bands including Mushroom, Sonya Hunter, Evie Ladin/Evil Diane, The Crooked Jades, Alice Bierhorst, The Billy Talbot Band, Daevid Allen’s University of Errors, Irene Sazer, Matt Lax and Nearly Beloved, The Stairwell Sisters, and his own Erik Pearson Band.
