Bears with Eagle Arms is a baroque folk band.
Baroque Folk is our term for the combination of straightforward singer-songwriter storytelling with unique (some might say bizarre) instruments and arangements.
We create folk and pop songs that draw inspiration from 60’s folk and modern punk-folk. Expect to hear trumpet, violin, cello, xylophone, hand percussion, vocal harmony, and synthesizer -- and some normal band stuff too.
The band is influenced by the Mountain Goats, Arcade Fire, Neutral Milk Hotel, Donovan, Beach Boys, Kurt Vonnegut, and Steve Reich.
We've played at Syntax Physic Opera, Globe Hall, Skylark, Herman's Hideaway, Tennyson's Tap, and Lion's Lair. We're always looking for new shows.
