The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio Live at Medallion Opera House

Contact: Denise Vallee
603-466-3322 x3

The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio will perform live on Thursday, July 13th at 7:30 pm at the Medallion Opera House, 20 Park Street, Gorham Town Hall, in Gorham. Tickets are $12.00 and are available at White Mountain Café, Gorham Town Hall and online at http://www.medallionoperahouse.org. The concert is sponsored by Hub North (Jason & Kara Hunter).

At first glance, Heather Pierson appears to be the girl next door – youthful, friendly, a little bit shy. At the seat of a piano or brandishing an acoustic guitar, however, she transforms into a world-class performer, baring her soul in a manner that leaves her listeners breathless and aching for more.

Heather Pierson is an award-winning pianist, multi-genre singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, arranger, bandleader, and performer. From New Orleans-style jazz and blues to rousing Americana and poignant folk narratives, Heather’s memorable, intimate, and cathartic live performances, both solo and with her acoustic trio (Davy Sturtevant on strings/cornet and Shawn Nadeau on bass), feature her virtuosity on piano, her bell-tone vocals, and her commanding yet playful stage presence while wielding a tenor banjo, melodica, ukulele, or acoustic guitar. Her music moves seamlessly and effortlessly from one style to the next, and a growing catalog of wildly divergent CD releases reflects her boundless creativity.

heather pierson acoustic trio.PNGAfter enjoying modest success with the release of several solo records (Make It Mine in 2010; The Open Road in 2012; The Hard Work of Living in 2013; Motherless Child in 2014), Heather burst upon the national folk scene in 2015 with her trio. The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio features Shawn Nadeau on upright bass and Davy Sturtevant on, as Heather often puts it from stage, “everything else” – guitar, mandolin, dobro, fiddle, cornet. Originally hailing from Erie, PA, Davy Sturtevant is a veteran touring artist, producer, engineer, songwriter, and performer who now makes his home in Lovell, ME.

Armed with a gorgeous tenor voice and a mighty arsenal of instruments ranging from dobro to fiddle to cornet that come to life in his capable hands, Davy is at once a witty, thoughtful, and engaging stage presence. New Hampshire native Shawn Nadeau brings a rock solid thump and nearly two decades of performing experience to the trio, informed by a wide spectrum of unique rhythmic and melodic sensibilities ranging from rockabilly to reggae to jazz. In their able hands, these three veteran musicians have catapulted Heather’s live performances of her deep well of Americana originals – folk, jazz, blues – with intricate instrumental arrangements and stirring three-part vocal harmonies. The trio’s debut EP, Still She Will Fly, was released in May 2015. Its title track was the #2 single on the Folk radio charts for the year in 2015, and three other songs were also in the Top 100 singles on Folk radio in 2015. The trio’s full-length debut, Singin’, releases on June 30, 2017, the tenth release on Heather’s own record label, Vessel Recordings.

Throughout her colorful career, her eclectic skill set continues to propel her onto concert hall stages and into barrooms, coffeehouses, resort hotels, living rooms, and churches. Her nearly non-stop performance schedule (with over 200 shows a year) speaks of her tireless work ethic and endless devotion to her crafts. Defying genre and classification and yet fully embracing all musical styles, Heather is an artist who speaks the language of music in as many dialects as her abilities will allow. Her life’s work, she says, is to share her love of music and of life with others – one song, one heart, one mind at a time.

Horsefeathers Hosts Folk Duo Bennett & Perkins Host CD Release Party for “House on Fire”

Folk duo Bennett & Perkins will debut their newest CD “House on Fire” October 13, 2012, at a CD release party hosted by Horsefeathers Restaurant in North Conway, NH. The concert will begin at 8 pm. The duo, featuring guitars and vocals by Thom Perkins and Kathy Bennett, perform a wide array of original songs with powerful lyrics and melodies, coupled with exceptionally strong vocals and guitar work.

The new album “House on Fire” is a collection of original songs and a natural continuation of their music from their first CD “The Kitchen Music Sessions” released in 2010. The duo has been featured at concerts and festivals throughout New England and has received radio airplay throughout the region, including being featured performers on New Hampshire Public Radio’s Folk Show.

“House on Fire” was produced and recorded in Eaton, NH at Top of the Hill Studio by Tom Dean and features additional performances by Tom Yoder (mandolin), Joyce Andersen (fiddle) and Tom Dean (percussion, mandola and bass).

While most of the compilation consists of songs written by Bennett & Perkins, it also features a song written by Maine bluegrass musician Ted DeMille; and a New Hampshire reworking of Townes Van Zandt’s, “Colorado Girl,” retooled as “White Mountain Girl.” Many of the pairs’ original song lyrics feature real life stories from the north country of New Hampshire, telling of lost lives, lost loves and real life adventures.

Bennett and Perkins have been frequent performers throughout New England, including appearances at Ossipee Valley Music Festival, Maine’s largest acoustic music festival; the Maine Songwriters by the Sea concert series; Arts Jubilee Concert Series; One Longfellow Square in Portland, ME; and the Nantucket Atheneum.

Upcoming performances include an October 1 appearance at the Fryeburg Fair; October 6 at the Nantucket Atheneum; October 7 at the WVRV The River stage at the Boston Local Food Festival; October 20th at the New Moon Coffeehouse in Haverhill, Mass.; in addition to the CD release party on October 13 at Horsefeathers in North Conway.

The pair is scheduled for live appearances on WMWV 93.5, North Conway, NH (www.wmwv.com) on Wed. October 10 at 12:30pm; and on Outside TV-16, North Conway, NH on Sat. October 13 at 9:10am.

“House on Fire” will be available for sale at the CD Release Party but will also be available at White Birch Books and North Conway Music, both located on Route 16 in North Conway, NH.
