Pearl and the Beard to Perform at Celebrate Mansfield Festival

The Mansfield Downtown Partnership is pleased to announce the headliner for the 12th Annual Celebrate Mansfield Festival: Pearl and the Beard!


Pearl and the Beard are Brooklyn trio Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles. The three passionately intertwine three distinct voices amidst a powerfully delicate orchestra of cello, guitars, keyboard, bells, and percussion, offering songs that speak to joy and sorrow, love and loss.

The breadth of their songwriting and genre-defying sound is reflected in the vast variety of other artists with whom they've shared the stage, most notably Ani DiFranco, Matt & Kim, Ingrid Michaelson, Lucius, Laura Marling, Avan Lava, and The Drums. The trio plans to release their third full-length album this summer.

A joy to listen to… Pearl and the Beard make something you never thought to ask for, but find that you no longer want to live without.

They transcend genre. It’s indie folk music, but it’s also infused with blues hollers, the occasional jazz riff, and a deep passion for the material.
