About Peggy & David

Peggy Watson and  David Beldock perform original acoustic folk, blues and jazz. Together, they are known for their dazzling musicianship, beautiful harmonies, and humorous stage presence.

David and Peggy started their collaboration as unlikely music partners. While David spent years performing with various bands, honing his rock and blues guitar playing, Peggy was rooted in contemporary folk traditions with occasional detours into jazz and pop. But when they joined forces, they discovered that writing songs together was a fun challenge that they couldn’t resist. The result has been a collection of melodic, thoughtful, funny, and emotional songs that appeal to a wide range of listeners. Their styles span everything from folk to jazz to blues to show tunes. 

David Beldock is a guitar player and singer/songwriter. He has played in two of San Diego’s most renowned bands, Bordertown and Wooden Angel. His songs have won various awards, most notably from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and from Dr. Demento (which especially pleased him). His solo CDs, along with his collaborative CDs with Peggy, have received favorable reviews. He enjoys writing songs and making music with Peggy Watson. 

Before meeting David, Peggy performed as a solo singer/songwriter. She played at coffee houses, concert series and benefit concerts mostly in the San Diego region. Her wide vocal range and clear soprano voice have made her a standout among local singers. Peggy has used her talents to perform concerts benefitting AIDS organizations, international medical aid projects, and many events supporting environmental justice, and human rights. David has joined her in this tradition. Peggy’s CDs have received excellent reviews from local publications and one of her albums was selected to be part of a KPBS Radio premium membership package. 

Bass player, Paul Beach is a gifted musician who worked with Peggy and David for nearly a decade - and his bass is featured on the two Watson, Beldock & Beach trio albums. In the past, Paul toured with major bands in all 50 states and throughout the world. His credits include tours with Gary Puckett, Spanky and Our Gang, the Association, and the Mamas and the Papas. He currently plays bass with “Wings of Eagles,” an Eagle's tribute band.

David and Peggy continue to perform at a wide variety of venues, including house concerts, libraries, and concert series.
