In 1978 Pied Pear received a standing ovation playing in the rain on the very first night of the very first Vancouver Folk Music Festival. Thirty-three years later they're back together to play those tunes one more time. Folk, blues, country, rock and roll - there's not much this lively duo will not do to make folks laugh, weep and tap their toes.
To celebrate their reunion tour in Spring 2011 they released a PIED PEAR COLLECTOR EDITION 2011 CD, combining two albums previously only available on vinyl: The Pear of Pied Pumkin and Pied Who? Pear What?
Don't miss this chance to hear two folk icons whooping it up with some of Vancouver's leading musicians, including Shari Ulrich, Claire Lawrence, Tom Hazlitt, Rene Worst, Albert St. Albert, Geoff Eyre, Duris Maxwell and the late great Robbie King.
Eighteen songs recorded by the late great Geoff Turner at Vancouver's Pinewood Studios, remastered for CD by David Jewer at SPIN Digital Media.
From 1974-76 Rick Scott and Joe Mock pioneered indie roots music with Shari Ulrich in the legendary folk trio Pied Pumkin. When Shari joined the Hometown Band, Pied Pumkin became Pied Pear. Rick and Joe toured far and wide playing concerts, dances and festivals. They released three LPs. They represented Canada at the 1982 Knoxville World's' Fair.
Then they each went their separate ways: Joe to make music in Japan and France, and Rick to nine countries as an actor, singer/songwriter and acclaimed family entertainer. Pied Pumkin reunited in 1998 and continues to tour when opportunity arises. But Rick and Joe have always wanted to get back to playing the vast and unique Pied Pear repertoire, and in spring 2011 Joe is traveling from his home in France to do just that.
