The ACMA welcomes the Heather Pierson Duo on Saturday, June 4. Local ACMA member Andy Getch will open the show.

Heather Pierson

Heather Pierson is a pianist, singer-songwriter and performer whose inspiring live performances with her bassist/partner Shawn Nadeau delve into Americana, New Orleans jazz, blues, and folk. Best known for her ease at the piano and her bell-¬tone vocals, Heather’s songs and the duo’s musicianship embody honesty, playfulness and a desire to share from the heart. They have been known to sneak in a bit of Chopin.
Andy Getch is one of the original ACMA members and singer/songwriters from the group’s humble beginnings. Along with being a talented musician, Andy paints cool stuff, hosts house concerts and participates in a wide array of sustainable living.


The ACMA presents Passerine in concert on Saturday, June 25.
Passerine’s distinctive sound combines vocal harmonies, the crisp rhythms of an acoustic guitar, the haunting voices of the fiddle and dobro (resonator slide guitar), the resonant lows of an acoustic bass. With inventive vocal harmonies and song-writing, supported by the sounds of acoustic strings, Passerine offers a fresh take on traditional folk and bluegrass music as well as a repertoire of original songs that range from sweet ballads to the edgier side of contemporary Americana.
Opening is ACMA member and singer-songwriter Millie Van Horn. Millie’s original music will make you laugh and understand the blues.
Admission is $12 for members and $18 for non-members. The ACMA listening room is located at 2756 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers.
