Join BAAM & The Gem on Christmas Eve for a performance of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” by the Heather Pierson Trio.
Based in Conway, NH, The Heather Pierson Trio (Heather, piano and vocals; Shawn Nadeau, bass; and Craig Bryan, drums) shares their interpretation of Vince Guaraldi’s iconic soundtrack of “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, additional Guaraldi compositions, and other 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”. His gentle jazz riffs established musical trademarks that, to this day, still prompt smiles of recognition. The Heather Pierson Trio performs the entirety of the Charlie Brown Christmas album as recorded by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, as well as other Guaraldi compositions.

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. In over twenty years on her own record label, Vessel Recordings, she has released fourteen albums and several singles of original music.
