WALDOBORO — The Heather Pierson Trio brings their holiday "A Charlie Brown Christmas" show back to The Waldo Theatre on Saturday, December 23, at 4 p.m.
Heather Pierson is a New Hampshire based singer/songwriter, pianist, song leader, and performer with a passion for cultivating joy, both onstage and off.
“With a toe in each of the realms of New Orleans jazz, blues, and folk, her multi-genre songwriting places her in a category all her own, one honed by decades of diligent practice and curious exploration,” said The Waldo, in a news release. “Her trio, with Shawn Nadeau on bass/vocals and Craig Bryan on percussion/vocals, performs a rich variety of Heather's originals, jazz and blues standards, and unique re-workings of familiar classics. Their live performances feature their brilliant musicianship, stirring three-part vocal harmonies, boundless joy, and a desire to share from the heart.”
In their annual December offering, The Heather Pierson Trio performs the entirety of the A Charlie Brown Christmas album as recorded by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, as well as other Guaraldi compositions and holiday favorites.
“The musical score for A Charlie Brown Christmas, composed by the late Vince Guaraldi and first broadcast in December of 1965, is just as poignant and touching as the story and includes the hugely popular hit Linus and Lucy,” said The Waldo.“Guaraldi’s gentle jazz riffs established musical trademarks that, to this day, still prompt smiles of recognition.”
