HANDS OF THE HERON: Hands of the Heron is a dreamfolk trio from Bristol, UK. Their instantly recognisable vocal harmonies are delivered by three frontwomen – Bec GarthwaiteBeth Roberts & Claire Vine – each of whom brings a signature writing style to the band’s mercurial sound. They move effortlessly between sparse choral folk and spellbinding chamber pop, richly layered with an assortment of strings, drones and reeds. Their long-awaited second album 13 Moons was released in February 2021 on their own DIY label Cuculi Records, and has been praised as “a wondrous collection of curious story-songs, choral singing and carefully layered instrumentation” (Joyzine) with “songwriting mastery that perfectly delivers reverberating folk-pop” (Tap The Feed). Esteemed jazz critic Ted Gioia recommended 13 Moons as one of his top recordings for 2021.

They’ve played a diverse range of festivals, including Fire in the Mountain, Purbeck Valley Folk, Green Man, Summer’s End Prog Festival, Fanny’s Meadow and Green Gathering. Recent shows include a sold-out Bristol headline show in September 2022 as part of the prestigious Outlandish Nights series, alongside Lisa O’Neill and Mikey Kenney. In 2023, they sold-out a double bill with Rachael Dadd at St Ambrose (Bristol), and also sold out headline gigs at Barrelhouse (Totnes), Exeter Library and Plymouth Aquarium.
