Earle Peach Choral Music

An outdoor image of Earle in a local community gardenEarle Peach has been a fixture on the Vancouver folk music landscape for decades, playing with Songtree, Natural Elements, Ship of Fools, Flying Ship, Sudanda and countless others. He conducts several choirs, teaches a variety of music skills and creates music for film, video and theatre.

In the broader world Earle is a composer, conductor, musician and organizer. He has written extensively for film, theatre and choir. Earle currently conducts four choirs, including a labour choir, a mental health choir, a regular community choir and a drop-in choir in the Downtown south side of Vancouver.

Earle also plays in a trio called Songtree with his partner Barbara Jackson; in a Sudanese band built around the music of oudh player and singer Ala’aEldin Abdalla; in a madrigal group which performs music of the renaissance; and a band which plays his original music, called Illiteratty. In his spare time he makes up trashy dance music on the computer, and grows vegetables (when they cooperate). Earle’s film work has been catalogued by the New York Times.
