Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio
July 6 @ 8:00 pm
Preservation New Jersey welcomes The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio, performing music from New Orleans Jazz & Blues to Rousing Americana and Poignant Folk in their first appearance at the 1867 Sanctuary.
Hailing from New Hampshire’s Mount Washington Valley, the Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio (www.heatherpierson.com) are three musicians from three very different backgrounds, bringing their skills, quiet charm, and down-to-earth honesty to bear on songs that bring to life the sounds of the streets of New Orleans and the valleys of Appalachia and everywhere in between. They burst upon the national folk scene with the release of their debut EP, Still She Will Fly, whose title track was the #2 single on the Folk radio charts for the year in 2015.
The trio’s live performances feature Heather’s multi-genre songwriting, their instrumental virtuosity, and their stirring three-part vocal harmonies. 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 is currently in the works and planned for a mid-2019 release.
With over 200 shows a year all over the US, the Acoustic Trio have performed at a variety of venues during their national tours and local appearances, including clubs, folk festivals, theaters, opera houses, performing art centers, schools, libraries, private concerts, and park concert series.
Heather Pierson (lead vocals, piano, acoustic guitar, tenor banjo, ukulele, melodica) is an award-winning singer/songwriter, pianist, and performer. 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.
Davy Sturtevant (acoustic guitar, 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 and nod their heads.
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.
