A chance to hear the group’s signature mix of traditional Scots and original songs, this tour will see Heron Valley performing at venues up and down the UK, from Glenuig to Newcastle.
With roots in Scottish and Irish traditional music, including traditional Scots song and Scottish piping tunes and irish banjo, the six-piece group is composed of Abigail Pryde on fiddle and vocals, Keith Morrison on keys, Nick Hamilton on banjo and guitar, Alastair Maclean on bagpipes and whistles, Callum Cronin on bass and guitar, and Darren Brown on drums.
Abigail Pryde said: “We are delighted to be bringing our tour to Fort William this autumn. It’s great to be back on the road again after a tough couple of years and we can’t wait to share our music and make new memories at some fantastic venues.”
Heron Valley’s music takes inspiration from the beautiful places they have visited as a band, as well as the people they have met. Using the fiddle, drums, banjo, guitar, bass, bagpipes, whistle and vocals, Heron Valley transports audiences to many beautiful places, through melodies and lyrics, from the rugged islands of the Outer Hebrides, to the mystical hills of Argyll.
When listening to their music, you can tell this group are passionate about their own heritage. They truly showcase the beauty of Scotland’s culture, language and sounds in their work.
Heron Valley’s inception as a folk band began in 2014, after spending the first few years of their musical careers perfecting their craft as a young ceilidh dance band.
In 2015 the band released their first single and music video, a set of tunes, Pressed for Time, and a year later they released their second single and video Home.
From this, the band set off to the USA and EU and continued to release more music including their debut album Roam, singles Take You There and Springburn, just shy of Ireland and EP Erie Storm.
