Winter has been trying to gain a foothold here in the Northeast. One day, it’s snowing and sleeting, blustery and cold; then the next it’s mild, blue-skied and sunny! That won’t last long, though – the snow that now caps Mount Washington will soon make its way down into the valley. Of course, the snow and cold has put me in the right frame of mind for the Charlie Brown Christmas shows, which are starting this coming Sunday! I am so excited to bring these shows to even more venues this year, and even more psyched to be presenting this music as a quartet – with Shawn Nadeau on bass and Matty Bowman on drums, and with the addition this year of sax man Joe Aliperti.

We have a very special concert planned that will bring you and your family some honest-to-goodness holiday cheer! Vince Guaraldi’s timeless collection of music has been a joy for us as a quartet to learn, explore and to put our own spin on, and we’re really looking forward to sharing it with you!
Tickets and more information are available at www.heatherpierson.com. (You can also buy Gorham tickets at White Mountain Cafe in Gorham, and Norway tickets at Books ‘n’ Things in Norway.)
Hope to see and hear from you soon! Happy Holidays!
