Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio in Ripton.jpg
Shawn Nadeau, Heather Pierson and Davy Sturtevant will come together as the Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio at the Ripton Community Coffee House this Saturday night.

Music critic DC Blom says that the Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio gives audience two for one. They slide “from sweet acoustic Appalachian old-timey vibe with Patty Griffinesque lyrics to brassy New Orleans blues piano with a bone thrown to Bessie Smith,” Bloom writes in Lone Star Music Magazine.

Judge for yourself when the Ripton Community Coffee House welcomes the Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio to the Ripto Community House this Satruday, June 2, at 7:30 p.m.

The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio is unusual in some respects. It is comprised of three virtuoso musicians from three very different backgrounds, bringing their skills, their quiet charm and their down-to-earth honesty to bear on songs that bring to life the sounds of the streets of New Orleans and the valleys of Appalachia. Their recordings (2015’s “Still She Will Fly” and 2017’s “Singin’”) and live performances feature Pierson’s multi-genre songwriting, their instrumental virtuosity and stirring three-part vocal harmonies.

Pierson’s live performances feature her amazing talent on piano, her bell-tone vocals and her commanding yet playful stage presence while wielding a tenor banjo, melodica or acoustic guitar. The acoustic trio is rounded out by Davy Sturtevant on strings/cornet and Shawn Nadeau on upright bass.

As always, the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. with an open mike set, followed by the featured performers. Open mike performers are encouraged to call in advance and reserve one of the four open-mike slots.

Admission to the coffeehouse is $3 kids (12 and under), $10 general admission and $15 generous admission. The economically challenged may pay what they can afford. Refreshments are available. The coffeehouse is held on the first Saturday of each month, except August. For more information, contact Richard Ruane or Andrea Chesman at 388-9782.
