Hear it From Heather

I am honored to be a FORMAL SHOWCASE at the 2021 NERFA Conference Nov. 12! We're virtual once more, but I welcome any chance to sing my soul. 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.

I am fully vaccinated and playing my final shows of the year, both solo and with the band. We've been choosy, and continue to do very few indoor shows. As the weather turns cold and drives everyone inside, we have decided to go on performance hiatus for much of winter. We have a few shows we're really excited about, but will be spending most of our time 1) helping a new generation of young songwriters, 2) judging submissions for contests that helped change our lives as artists and 3) BOOKING for a spring rebirth. I would love to get your venue, porch, studio ... hell, even your driveway ... on the calendar. Please EMAIL ME with booking requests and venue recommendations.

Stillness makes one miss the road. My wild heart is restless. But quarantine is also a safe place to just TRY things. Like this version of "The Animal Crackers Song" I did stuck at home with my personal Partridge Family. At "Quarantimes," in the menu, you can hear and read how I spent my time. Oh! And I uploaded basically my entire catalog (including exclusives) to Bandcamp.
