John Pearse is better known at the moment as a teacher than a performer. The terrific success of his BBC 'Hold Down A Chord' series has temporarily obscured his work as a singer and player in Britain. On the continent however John is one of the best known English folksingers.
It was work on continental television that first brought him into contact with the Dutch guitarist Dick Poons (pronounced Pones), and when John came to prepare his second Xtra LP he invited Dick to join him.
So we have the combination of two sharply contrasting guitar and vocal styles on a wide range of songs and guitar pieces including a new look at old favourites and a first look at some newly written songs.
