BELLOWS FALLS — The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio with special guest Emily Lyons will perform at Stage 33 Live in Bellows Falls at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19.
Hailing from New Hampshire's Mount Washington Valley, the Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio 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 No. 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 No. 1 on the Folk radio charts and was the No. 11 album for the year. Heather's new full-length recording, "Lines and Spaces," was released on November 15.
Pierson (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, tenor banjo, piano) 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 (cornet, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, harmony vocals) is 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) 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.
