Chris Pierce returns to Woodstock for emotional concert

Saturday, July 29, 7:30 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Pentangle Arts presents singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Chris Pierce, in collaboration with the 9th annual Bookstock Literary Festival, Saturday, July 29, 7:30 p.m. Pierce’s presentation “A Path for the Song” will explain his personal approach to songwriting and his interpretation of the human experience.

Chris Pierce is an established artist who’s released seven independent albums worldwide. In addition to headlining his own tours, he has performed either alongside or opened for artists like the Cold War Kids, Seal, Colbie Callait, and B.B. King. His music has been heard in numerous films and television shows, including the No. 1 U.S. primetime TV show “This Is Us,” which prominently featured “We Always Come Back to This,” a song he co-wrote with Siddhartha Khosla.

In “A Path for the Song” he offers his own unique perspective on the human experience, vulnerability, and what it means to achieve emotional freedom. According to Pierce, being a songwriter has allowed him to be a lifelong student of human emotion. Creating music has helped him through both good times and bad, and Pierce hopes that his songs will assist others in their spiritual healing like they have for himself.

The concert opens with a performance by local talent Cloudland Road, an acoustic pop duo. The duo features Dylan Keith and Chris von Staats, talented guitarists and vocalists who perform inventive arrangements of bands ranging from Radiohead to Van Morrison.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for Pentangle members; kids age 12 and under are free. The concert will be held at the Woodstock Town Hall Theatre. Beer and wine will be available.

This concert is part of Vermont Arts 2017, is a year-long celebration highlighting the stunning array of arts events — concerts, festivals, exhibits, and openings — that take place across Vermont.
