Bears with Eagle Arms is a baroque folk band.
Baroque is a highly ornamented style of classical music. Also, it is a production style that added orchestration to 60’s and 70’s pop bands. Folk is a musical style that derives from unwritten, unpolished tunes and unpowered instruments.
We create folk and pop songs with ideas from the 1960’s and 1760’s. Expect to hear trumpet, violin, cello, xylophone, hand percussion, vocal harmony, and synthesizer - and some normal band stuff too.
The band is influenced by Arcade Fire, Neutral Milk Hotel, Donovan, Beach Boys (late 60’s, early 70’s), Giovanni Gabrieli, Kurt Vonnegut, the Mountain Goats
