Sunapee, N.H. — Award-winning pianist and mutli-genre singer/songwriter Heather Pierson will be performing her heartfelt, soulful music at the Sunapee Community CoffeeHouse, at the Sunapee Methodist Church, Lower Main Street, on Friday, November 7, from 7 to 9 p.m.
“There’s a real pureness to her voice as she leads us through intimate corners of her experiences and tells stories with a Joni Mitchell kind of edge . . . it’s as if it’s as second nature as breathing.” – Portland Press Herald
Heather’s performances move seamlessly and effortlessly from one style to the next, from New Orleans-style jazz and blues to rousing Americana and poignant folk narratives. She is now finishing up work on her eighth studio recording, Motherless Child, a collection of inspired originals and renditions of blues and jazz standards that promises to be her best release to date. It’s due for release this November.
Tom Donnelly is the scheduled CoffeeHouse emcee for the evening. Leena Marks (Sunapee Canvas Works) is the local sponsor.
