Texan Josh T. Pearson is a man whose legendary musical output has only grown in stature over the years. Many will be familiar with the short-lived phenomenon that was Lift to Experience, which released one sprawling masterpiece - 2001′s The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads - before splitting up soon after.

It took Pearson a full decade to make another record – as soon as his Berlin-recorded debut solo album Last Of The Country Gentlemen appeared, it was clear that it was worth the wait.

Following on from a string of sold out London shows – at The Slaughtered Lamb, the Purcell Rooms and the Union Chapel - Pearson closes 2011 with this very special Barbican concert.

The first half of the show will consist of four short sets (3-4 songs) introduced / presented by Josh T Pearson.

The artists are:

We Three and the Death Rattle
Richard Warren
Big Deal
Cold Specks

We talked to Josh T Pearson for our monthly podcast. Enjoy.
