The Heather Pierson Trio at Old Sloop Presents — Rachel Marie opens
January 7 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$15
Pianist, singer/songwriter, song leader, and performer Heather Pierson will bring her trio to Old Sloop Presents Saturday, January 7. The performance will be in the handicap-accessible Fellowship Hall of the First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St. at 7:30pm. Boston singer-songwriter Rachel Marie will open the show.
Heather Pierson’s music delves into Americana, blues, New Orleans jazz, vocal chants, instrumental piano, and folk. Best known for her ease at the piano and her bell-tone vocals, her songs and musicianship embody joy, honesty, playfulness, and a desire to share from the heart. Defying genre and classification and yet fully embracing all musical styles, Heather is an artist who speaks the language of music in as many dialects as her considerable abilities will allow.
Opener Rachel Marie follows in a tradition of unapologetically forthright women folksingers. The social awareness of folk meets the introspection of the singer-songwriter tradition with a moderate dose of snark.
