The Heather Pierson Trio
We are so excited to welcome Heather Pierson to the Friends Folk Club on Friday, July 13th. Heather Pierson is an award-winning pianist, multi-genre singer/songwriter, arranger, bandleader, and performer. She plays New Orleans-style jazz and blues, Americana and folk music with piano, tenor banjo, melodica, and acoustic guitar. This visit, Heather will also bring Davy Sturtevant on strings and cornet and Shawn Nadeau on upright bass, forming an acoustic trio that will fill the hall with the wonderful music that springs from Heather’s boundless creativity! Heather first discovered her love of music as she listened to her dad play his clarinet to the recordings of Pete Fountain and Woody Herman. When she and her parents moved to Maine, at age five, her dad started to teach her to play the piano. “I’ll never forget it,” she recalls. “The very first time I played the piano – a real piano – I knew that this was exactly what I wanted to do, every moment that I had the chance to do it.” At this point in her career, Heather has released four recordings on her own and, in June of this year, her first full-length recording with Davy and Shawn: Singin’, a collection of ten originals and two classics. Defying description 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." The last time Heather was in the area, she sold out the venue! Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door. The Friends Folk Club accepts cash only. Children 12 and under are free. Doors open at 7:00PM, and concert will start at 7:30PM. The concert will be held at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church 116 Lancaster Pike Oxford, PA 19363. Attendees are asked to bring nonperishable food items which will be given to the local area food cupboards Refreshments are available at a reasonable price. For more information call: 610-869-8076.
