BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio burst into the national folk scene with their 2015 EP, “Still She Will Fly,” and the title track was that year’s #2 single on folk radio. Their 2017 CD, “Singin’,” debuted at #1 and was the #11 folk charting album of the year. Heather’s new solo album, “Lines and Spaces,” comes out this month and is her 12th CD release.
The trio will bring their “traveling music store” of instruments – piano, acoustic guitar, tenor banjo, ukulele, melodica, cornet, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, bass, and maybe more – to Stage 33 Live in a special matinee performance Sunday, Nov. 24 at 2 p.m. Local up-and-comer Emily Lyons will open. Doors open at 1 p.m.
The trio’s performances feature Heather’s multi-genre songwriting that spans from the streets of New Orleans to the valleys of Appalachia; heartfelt music featuring stirring three-part vocals and earthy charm with Shawn Nadeau on upright bass and Davy Sturtevant on “everything else.”
One hundred percent of tickets sales support the musicians. Seating is limited. Advance tickets will have chairs reserved until 40 tickets are sold. If any chairs behind the reserved rows are available on show day, those will be available first-come first-served. Attendees are allowed to bring their own portable seating to set up behind the house chairs, or to use in place of their reserved chair.
