The Hearth, The Hearth, Main Rd, Horsley, Newcastle upon Tyne NE15 0NT, UK
A consummate guitarist, highly acclaimed by her contemporaries, Dutch-born Vera van Heeringen brings the instrument to life in way that is entirely her own. Vera also writes tunes and songs which deliver straight to - and from - the heart. Firmly rooted in Transatlantic traditions, her original contemporary take on Americana combines firebrand instrumental virtuosity and poignant, emotionally astute songwriting.
Currently Vera tours with a watertight acoustic trio featuring double-bass stalwart Andy Seward and Dave Luke on guitar, vocals and mandolin. A compelling performer, Vera conveys an easy warmth on stage.
Her live performances are intimate, understated affairs, allowing the music to speak for itself - stripped back, potent, and full of groove. Outstanding flatpicking, fulsome fiddle playing, heartbreaking lyrics, and assured natural vocal tone and driving tunes are all integral to the show.
