ACT EVENT

Sandhill Stage: HEATHER PIERSON ACOUSTIC TRIO

WHAT

“Heather’s Trio gave one of the most entertaining, artistic, and engaging performances we’ve hosted in our 46 years! Their consummate musicianship, gorgeous vocal harmonies, and excellent songwriting held me and our full-house audience spellbound. Individually, the three of them are terrific. As a trio they are astounding… The walls of our little venue hold many wonderful sounds and memories. We’ve just added some of the best.”
– Dave Humphreys | Two Way Street Coffeehouse | Downers Grove, IL

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.

At first glance, Heather Pierson appears to be the girl next door – youthful, friendly, a little bit shy - but she is an award-winning pianist, multi-genre singer/songwriter, arranger, bandleader, and performer.  From New Orleans-style jazz and blues to rousing Americana and poignant folk narratives, Heather’s memorable live performances feature her virtuosity on piano, her bell-tone vocals, and her commanding yet playful stage presence while wielding a tenor banjo, melodica, or acoustic guitar

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.

The trio’s full-length debut, Singin’, was released on June 30, 2017, the tenth release on Heather’s own record label, Vessel Recordings.  Singin’ is a document of ten originals and two classics, spanning from the streets of New Orleans to the valleys of Appalachia, and it debuted at #1 on the Folk radio charts.
