The genre-defying musical styles of the Heather Pierson Trio
The Chocolate Church Arts Center welcomes Heather Pierson, award-winning pianist, multi-genre singer/songwriter, arranger, bandleader, and performer, on Feb. 9 as part of the Kill The Chill Concert Series. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Annex, located at 804 Washington Street, Bath.
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.
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. She performs both solo and with her acoustic trio, featuring Davy Sturtevant on strings/cornet and Shawn Nadeau on upright bass.
Tickets are $15 advance/$17 door. Tickets are available through the box office at 207-442-8455 and online www.chocolatechurcharts.org
