A Note From Heather

I am honored to be a FORMAL SHOWCASE at the 2021 NERFA Conference! We will be virtual once more, but this chance to sing my soul is welcome in any form. Earlier this year, the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) awarded me a video spotlight for "My Kinda Quarantiner," a piece of art I wrote, recorded, filmed, edited, costumed, everything. Thank you also to No Depression Magazine for featuring the video!

Whew number 2: I am now FULLY VACCINATED! The calendar is updating, and I would love to get your venue, porch, studio ... hell, even your driveway ... on it! Please EMAIL ME with booking requests and venue recommendations.

What did I find during the lost year? In March 2020, I was incredibly sick. I recovered and joined the streaming/video-making community, alternating live performances with pre-recorded fun like this version of "The Animal Crackers Song" I did quarantined with my Partridge Family. At "Quarantimes," in the menu, you can hear new demos and find archived livestreams. Oh! And I uploaded basically my entire catalog (including exclusives) to Bandcamp.
