07/09/12 Bernie Pearl Sat On The Couch

Bernie Pearl learned his upbeat, finger-poppin' picking style at the elbows of bluesmasters like Sam 'Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb and Mississippi Fred MacDowell.

Years of access to some of the greats in the folk and blues world through his brother's club The Ash Grove, Bernie has developed his unique stylings for the songs for which he was mentored.

Bernie told us stories of how he met some of the greats and his time as the first full-time blues DJ in Los Angeles.

We listened to tracks from his latest album, Sittin' On The Right Side of The Blues and found out the meaning behind the album title. This album is up for a Blues Blast Award for Best Traditional Blues Album.
