Beard moved to Rochester, New York, in the mid-1950s and from time to time would visit one of his brothers in Chicago. He became enamored with the blues being played there and eventually sat in both with John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters. Read more on Last.fm

He became enamored with the blues being played there and eventually sat in both with John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters. In Rochester, he formed the Soul Brothers Six, playing bass and singing.

He wouldn't perform in public on guitar until 1965. For most of the '60s on through the '80s, Beard worked as an electrician by day and would occasionally play out at night and on weekends. He long ago gained a reputation as one of the best local players around Rochester and has sporadically been counted as one of the best nationally. In the '90s, Beard began recording with the Audioquest label, and those two releases have won major acclaim within the blues and audiophile communities. Read more on Last.fm.
