HEATHER PIERSON ACOUSTIC TRIO: Heather Pierson, Shaun Nadeau & Davy Sturtevant
Heather 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, her memorable, intimate and cathartic live performances move seamlessly and effortlessly from one style to the next.
2014 saw the emergence of the Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio, featuring Shawn Nadeau on upright bass and Davy Sturtevant on guitar, mandolin, dobro, fiddle and cornet. Originally hailing from Erie, Pennsylvania, Davy Sturtevant is a veteran touring artist, producer, engineer, songwriter and performer who now makes his home in Lovell. 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 Piersons live performances of her deep well of Americana originals folk, jazz, blues with intricate instrumental arrangements and stirring three part vocal harmonies.
Special Guests: ORDINARY ELEPHANT
Ordinary Elephant captivates listeners with their well-honed combination of insightful writing, effortless harmonies and intertwined clawhammer banjo and guitar. The collaboration of husband and wife, their connection, and their influences (such as Gillian Welch, Guy Clark, Anais Mitchell) all meet on stage. As genuine as it gets says Lloyd Maines.
In 2017, Ordinary Elephant was both a Kerrville New Folk Finalist and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist, and their release Before I Go reached No. 2 on the Folk DJ Chart for January. The road is home for this couple, who are creating and sharing the conversation of their music as they go.
