A Special Acoustic Evening

Heather Nova and Arnulf Lindner will play on January 29, 2011 at the "Ruth Seaton James Centre" in Bermuda. This acoustic concert is part of the "Bermuda Festival of the Performing Arts 2011". Heather will also invite local guest musicians and poets to perform throughout the evening show.

Tickets are already on sale at

More information:

This is what Heather says about this forthcoming concert:

My next live appearance will be a concert with the Bermuda Festival on January 29th. This is special event for me because I will be donating my fee to a cause I feel passionate about – The Chewstick Foundation.

I wanted to contribute in some way to the healing of our community here in Bermuda, which has been torn apart by gang violence so I decided to do a concert to raise both money and awareness for Chewstick's outreach programs in the schools and prisons. They encourage kids to express themselves through music, poetry and spoken word, thereby giving them a sense of self esteem and empowerment. I truly believe Chewstick's programs have the potential to reach kids in a profound way, and that they can really help heal and intergrate our society - racially and culturally, thereby bringing about positive change. In their own words:

"Through youth programs, artist development projects and community initiatives we are inspiring individuals and cultivating an integrated society. We change lives by inspiring people to live their dream. Our events create opportunities to bring our divided community together and help heal age old wounds by allowing people the opportunity to express and understand each other in an environment of peace. We conduct dynamic youth programs at Berkeley Institute, Bermuda College and at the Co-Ed Facilty (juvenile prison)"

I'll be inviting a few local artists to participate in the evening, to showcase the talent that is on the island and is finding its voice through Chewstick.

Thanks to the Bermuda Festival for supporting this vision!

A Special Acoustic Evening : Special Acoustic Evening Tour 2010: A Look Back

A Special Acoustic Evening

In October 2010, Heather Nova and Austrian jack-of-all-instruments, Arnulf Lindner went on the road again for a Special Acoustic Evening Tour 2010. They started in Hasselt on October 1 and ended in Paris on October 30. They gave twenty-five shows (in only one month!) through Belgium, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, and France. In addition to those 25 regular shows, Heather performed two additional charity gigs in German hospitals.

The tour in many ways resembled the 2009 acoustic tour, since Heather and Arnulf again played most of the songs from the previous tour (Walk This World, Talk To Me, What A Feeling, Doubled Up, London Rain, Heart And Shoulder, and quite often Gloomy Sunday, Sugar, Out In New Mexico, Maybe Tomorrow, Fool For You and Paper Cup). But they replaced other songs from last year's setlist with some old classics instead, like Heal and Like Lovers Do, as well as some songs which they (unfortunately) very seldom played: Light Years, Avalanche, and Wicked Game. They even played songs Heather had (almost) never performed before: All The Way, I Walked Along The Shore (an untitled poem, performed only at the Crossing Border Festival 2002 so far), Looking For The Light and Singing You Through. They were able to mix fun and beauty, with a very original remix of Aquamarine and a cover of the famous '80s classic, Tainted Love.

Last but not least, they also added four new songs from Heather's upcoming album: Everything Changes, Burning To Love, Save A Little Piece Of Tomorrow and Turn The Compass Round. Though Everything Changes seems to be our members' favorite, most everyone seemed to agree that these new songs are very good, which means the forthcoming album (projected for Spring 2011) will probably be a great one.

Heather invited two Bermudian artists on the tour, Taylor Rankin and Joy T. Barnum. Taylor Rankin, hip-hop-inspired singer and violinist, opened the first half of the tour, before joining Heather on Gloomy Sunday and I Miss My Sky. The second half of the shows were opened by the soulful singer Joy T. Barnum and her guitarist. Joy was also invited to sing backing vocals for Heather on Singing You Through.

In Switzerland, France, and Germany, Heather experimented with selling a new kind of ticket. The "VIP tickets" allowed their owner to get a premium seat, a free recording of the show, a tour poster, and a "meet and greet" with the Heather Nova herself. Except in Paris, this new system seemed to work very well, and people were very happy to get the chance to have a little chat with Heather, who kindly signed many posters and CD covers.

Not to be forgotten, this tour gave Gerd (this site's owner) the occasion to attend his 100th Heather Nova concert in 15 years, in Mainz, on October 28. That night, to celebrate, Heather played one of his favorite songs: Ear To The Ground. Congratulations, Gerd!

A lot of HNN members could attend two, three, or more shows of the tour and were kind enough to post photos, videos, comments, and setlists on the forum. Many thanks to everyone! For those who want a souvenir of the shows, or for those who couldn't attend any gigs this time, Heather Nova sells the recording of each show (except Hasselt and Eindhoven, due to technical difficulties) on Each concert download costs 10 Euros. The recordings are high-quality mp3s. You can listen to the Zwolle gig from October 4 for free on that website.

We want to thank Heather Nova and Arnulf Lindner, her management, and all other people who helped her with this tour. Thank you very much for these unforgettable days!
