Ah, Monday morning and that is some beautiful blue sky out there! Last night, the usually comforting din of rainfall that was tapping on the roof and windows sounded more like the arrival of more destruction for folks who are already dealing with Irene’s wrath. I am fortunate enough to be this close to the Saco River (right across the street, eek!!) and to be warm and dry and in the comforts and conveniences of electricity. Just a few miles from here, however, there are many people who are stranded by and dealing with the aftermath of rising flood waters. I hope that everyone pulled safely through the rest of this storm.
It’s hard to believe that summer is nearly over! Labor Day Weekend is upon us, just like that. Here’s the rundown of my coming week:
Monday, August 29th
Carl will be back in the saddle tonight hosting open mic at The Red Parka in Glen, NH and I’m psyched to be going and playing some music with him again. It’s been too long! Music starts around 9 p.m. and goes until the wee hours.
Tuesday, August 30th
Provided I can find a way up there (with roads and bridges literally washed away), I’ll be up at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, NH playing in the main dining room from 6 to 9 p.m., then in the Princess Lounge accompanying Jazz Night for the last hour until 1o p.m.-ish.
Wednesday, August 31st
Shawn and I will be playing our last Wednesday night at Wine Thyme in North Conway, NH from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Friday, September 2nd
The Heather Pierson Trio (with Shawn on the bass and Matt Bowman on the drums) will return to Province Lake Golf Club in Parsonsfield, ME from 5 to 7 p.m.
Saturday, September 3rd
Shawn and I are playing our last Saturday at The Met for a while. We play from 2 to 4 p.m. and then we head over to perform at a new venue in North Conway – Smoke & Water Grill – from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
And there’s another week! Thanks everyone for your continued love and support!
