24th March @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
On Friday March 24th Sabado NFP welcomes the Vera van Heeringen Trio to Davenham Players Theatre – Vera has visited Davenham once previously when she and Neil McSweeney played for us in the September of 2013.
It’s unusual to find someone who’s as good a songwriter as an instrumentalist. Vera van Heeringen is that person. A consummate guitarist, highly acclaimed by her contemporaries, she brings the instrument to life in a way that is entirely her own. Vera also writes songs and tunes which deliver straight to – and from – the heart. Firmly rooted in Transatlantic traditions, her original contemporary Folk/Americana showcases both these skills: firebrand instrumental virtuosity and poignant, emotionally astute songwriting.
Vera tours with a watertight acoustic trio featuring harmony king Dave Luke on guitar, vocals and mandolin, and double-bass stalwart Andy Seward. Dave has been the backbone of many hard-working country bands and toured extensively with Nashville singer songwriter Gail Davies, playing venues like the Grand Ole Opry. Musician and record producer extraordinaire Andy Seward was part of folk darling Kate Rusby’s band as well as working with Eddi Reader, Andy Cutting, Martin Simpson and Brooks Williams.
SABADO NFP – works on a not for profit basis – the musician[s] have a guaranteed minimum fee – should ‘takings’ exceed this all of it is paid over to them and the Theatre.
