Admission-$10.00 at the door

           Desert Pearl is a seven piece band that performs original music along with a variety of bluegrass, folk, and country. British born Joe Gillis, the founder of the group, has performed with groups such as the Prairie Heirs of the Palo Duro, a traditional cowboy band that toured Germany in 1998, The String Technicians who were on the Texas Commission For the Arts Touring Roster, and as a solo singer/songwriter with two recording projects, “Moon Over the Palo Duro”, and” Lost Angel Diner”. All these musical influences are infused with the sounds and talents of the members of Desert Pearl.

Juli Handley sings lead and harmony and also plays guitar, piano, and hand percussion. Two sixteen year olds, Patrick Herzog on guitar and mandolin and Clarisa Ham on violin and vocals are two of Lubbock’s finest young musicians.

Amy Carroll, an original member of the group, sings lead and harmony with her crisp, clear voice, Darryl Lemons supports the groups sound with his steady bass runs and Justin Handley is a master of effects on his electric guitar. You will also enjoy the old time fiddle sounds of special guest Jim Bob Clary of Idalou.

 Desert Pearl has performed at venues that include The Gem Theater in Claude, The Home Mercantile in Nazareth, The Grill on Rt 66, in Groom, Lubbock Arts Festival, 4th on Broadway, and the Apple Butter Festival. With one recording project under their belt, “Psalm 33”, a new all original CD is on tap for this year.
