Heather Pierson trio to perform at Franco Center
Musical talent is showcased in trio's songwriting, instrumental virtuosity, and three-part vocal harmonies.
The Heather Pierson Trio is coming to the Franco Center at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 13. The band’s members: Heather Pierson, Davy Sturtevant, and Shawn Nadeau, span three generations of musical talent showcased in their songwriting, instrumental virtuosity, and three-part vocal harmonies.
With a nearly non-stop touring schedule throughout the U.S., the Acoustic Trio have performed at a variety of venues during their national tours and local appearances, including clubs, folk festivals, theaters, opera houses, performing art centers, schools, libraries, private concerts, and park concert series.
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, Pierson’s songs and musicianship embody joy, honesty, and a desire to share from the heart.
Davy Sturtevant (cornet, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, harmony vocals) is a sideman extraordinaire and 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, Sturtevant performs in a way that moves listeners to tap their toes, nod their heads, and raise knowing eyebrows.
Shawn Nadeau (bass, harmony vocals) is a self-taught phenom who 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.
