Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio
September 13, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15
From New Orleans Jazz & Blues to Rousing Americana and Poignant Folk
The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio is based in Conway, New Hampshire. Heather plays piano, acoustic guitar, tenor banjo, ukulele, and melodica. From New Orleans traditional jazz to blues to rousing Americana and poignant folk, Heather’s songs and musicianship embody joy, honesty, and a desire to share from the heart.
With their “traveling music store” of instruments, this trio delivers heartfelt music with brilliant musicianship, stellar three-part vocals harmonies, and earthy charm. Their latest CD, 2017’s Singin’, debuted at #1 on the Folk radio charts and was the #11 album for the year. A new full-length recording, Lines and Spaces, is currently in the works and planned for a late-2019 release.
Davy Sturtevant (cornet, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, harmony vocals) is a sideman extraordinaire and an accomplished singer/songwriter of his own, wielding both an arsenal of stringed and brass instruments and a gorgeous tenor voice. With wit and flair, Davy performs in a way that moves listeners to tap their toes, nod their heads, and raise knowing eyebrows.
Shawn Nadeau (bass, harmony vocals) is a self-taught phenom who brings an unassuming rock-solid foundation and a keen awareness to every moment of every song, informed by over two decades of wildly varying musical performances, from punk rock to reggae to jazz.
Together, these seemingly disparate voices draw on their respective experiences of the American musical voice – jazz, blues, folk – to create a unique and memorable experience.
With these many instruments and three part vocal harmonies, they perform a wide variety of original, uplifting Americana, with some very choice covers, ranging from folk to New Orleans traditional jazz to blues.
