Beth Pederson’s style of contemporary folk music has grown out of her exposure to classical, traditional folk, music of the the 60’s and 70’s, jazz, and the influence of singer/songwriters of today.
In 1970 Beth teamed up with Cinde Borup and the two became “Wild Roses” – the well-loved musical pair delighting audiences throughout the western United States and Canada. They co-produced four recordings during their twenty-eight year partnership: “Cross Country”, “Wild Roses”, “Voices on the Wind”, and “Northern Lights”. Cinde’s passing in August of 1998 left a huge void in the hearts of many. Her musical legacy and the music she and Beth created still reaches people all over the world.
Beth Pederson and Bruce Bishop
When Beth and Bruce Bishop met in 2007 there was an immediate connection and the beginning of a great collaborative effort. Bruce’s blues/ jazz background added a new dimension to Beth’s music and together they’ve created a beautiful blend of their diverse individual styles.
“When you combine the talents of two seasoned performers of exceptional artistry as singers, songwriters and musicians you find an irresistible pairing. Beth’s background as singer-songwriter with the Wild Roses folk duo and Bruce’s deep rooted blues and jazz history create a unique combination. Their repertoire of old standards, contemporary folk, and originals along with their easy going style continue to delight audiences everywhere.”
