Peggy Watson, David Beldock, and Paul Beach perform original acoustic folk, blues and jazz. Together, the three are known for their dazzling musicianship, beautiful harmonies, and humorous stage presence.
Peggy Watson is a unique musician. She is recognized as one of San Diego’s leading acoustic singer/songwriters but has been embraced by the jazz and pop world as well. With a wide vocal range, her smooth, emotional voice effortlessly moves between contemporary folk, smoky jazz, or powerful pop ballads. In a review of Peggy’s newest CD, “A Good Life,” George Varga of the San Diego Union Tribune wrote, “Watson’s purity of tone, pinpoint control and glorious range are matched throughout by her unerring good taste.”
David Beldock and Peggy Watson have been frequent music collaborators for nearly 20 years. Beldock is widely recognized as one of San Diego’s leading guitarists. A reviewer in the L.A. Times wrote “Beldock pushes the rhythmic wagon with some of the most cracklin’ country/jazz solos and fills you’ll hear anywhere.” Beldock is also a top-notch songwriter with several awards. His song “Feel the Wind,” won a second-place prize in the international John Lennon songwriting contest.
Paul Beach has recently started playing bass with Watson and Beldock. He is a gifted musician who worked with the late singer/songwriter Larry Robinson as well as many other renowned local performers. In the past, Beach toured with major bands in all 50 states and throughout the world. His credits include tours with Gary Puckett, Spanky and Our Gang, the Association, and the Mamas and the Papas.
