5792481Vera Van Heeringen
DateThursday 28th February 2019
DescriptionIt'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 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 Americana showcases both these skills: firebrand instrumental virtuosity and poignant, emotionally astute songwriting. An early starter, raised in the acoustic music scene in her native Holland, Vera has been performing from the age of 16. Vera's debut album, Standing Tall, was released in 2012 and marked a change of direction after nearly five years of touring as part of the brilliantly comedic New Rope String Band. In 2015, Vera released her second album, Proper Brew, which features a roll call of top-drawer musicians who share her musical aesthetic - amongst them Tim O'Brien, Dirk Powell, Rayna Gellert and Kris Drever. Vera's currently working on her third album.
