It’s been a very rewarding time here lately – last Thursday’s CD release show for “The Open Road” at Pitman’s Freight Room was a great success. Many thanks to the sweet folks who came out to listen so intently!
I was also very pleased at the turnout for the Harvest Concert on Sunday afternoon. There were musical offerings from myself, the Norway UU Choir, Davy Sturtevant, Nate Towne and the newly formed hospice choir “Sing Now”. It was a benefit for the Oxford Hills Food Pantry and, thanks to the kindness of everyone in attendance, we collected lots of food and cash donations for that worthy organization to help them through the tough holiday season. A great afternoon for a great cause!
Shawn and I have been working hard in the studio on my new acoustic tracks for CD #7 (!!!) which I’m hoping to release in the summer of 2013. Sneak previews are now available (along with a few other goodies) on the Listen/Buy section of my website: www.heatherpierson.com.
Tickets are now on sale for the Charlie Brown Christmas shows! Visit my website for dates, times, locations and to purchase tickets.
Here’s what’s happening the rest of this month:
Tuesday, November 20th: I had the pleasure of meeting Louisa Wise at NERFA last weekend. Here for 6 months from her home in Australia, she is touring the States with her music, which is absolutely beautiful and full of grace and charm! She plays guitar, dulcimer (that she built herself), fiddle and more! She’ll be performing at Pitman’s Freight Room in Laconia, NH at 8 p.m. If you’re in the area, please consider attending this concert. You’re in for a treat!
Thursday, November 22nd: Happy Thanksgiving! As has become my yearly tradition, I’ll be playing solo at The White Mountain Hotel in North Conway, NH starting at 11:30 a.m.
Friday & Saturday, November 23rd & 24th: I’ll be rocking The Red Parka Pub in Glen, NH with The Dean Machine! This room — and this band — are so much freaking fun!! 9 p.m. til the wee hours.
Wednesday, November 28th: The Heather Pierson Quartet will be at Delaney’s in North Conway from 9 p.m. til midnight. Blues/funk/jazz/whatnot. Maybe a Charlie Brown preview? MAYBE. :)
Friday, November 30th: Shawn and I will be performing at The Shannon Door Pub in Jackson, NH starting at 8 p.m. A warm and cozy room and great pizzas, too!
That’s it for now! Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook (HeatherPiersonMusic) or on Twitter (@HeatherPierson) to stay up to date on all the latest developments. Thank you so much for your continued love and support, and have a joyful and restful Thanksgiving!
