Heather Pierson Duo
Heather Pierson is an amazing talent, as comfortable and adept with bluegrass as she is with folk and jazz. Her gorgeous, rich vocals, her mesmerizing work on piano, guitar, and tenor banjo, and her insightful, soul-baring songwriting will leave you breathless and aching for more. She’s one of the sweetest, nicest people you’ve ever met, but on stage she transforms into a world-class performer, an artist who speaks the language of music in as many dialects as her abilities will allow. Her life’s work is to share her love of music and of life with others – one song, one heart, one mind at a time. Prepare to be transformed and overwhelmed by her amazing talent as a vocalist, performer, and songwriter.
Heather will be performing with life partner and music partner Shawn Nadeau, a self-taught phenom who brings an unassuming rock-solid foundation and a keen awareness to every moment of every song. His guitar work is informed by over two decades of wildly varying musical performances, from punk rock to reggae to jazz.
Throughout Pierson’s colorful career, her eclectic skill set continues to propel her onto concert hall stages and into barrooms, coffeehouses, resort hotels, living rooms, and churches. Her nearly non-stop performance schedule speaks of her tireless work ethic and endless devotion to her craft. Heather was a smash-hit at The Folk Project Acoustic Getaway and a favorite Troubadour headliner. We expect her visit to our Stayaway virtual stage will meet her typically joyful standards.
