Hands of the Heron is a dreamfolk trio from Bristol, UK. Their instantly recognisable vocal harmonies are delivered by three front-women – Bec Garthwaite, Bethany M. 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.

During 2022, they headlined a sold-out night at Bristol’s Boiling Wells Amphitheatre as part of the prestigious Outlandish Nights gig series, alongside artists such as Lisa O’Neill and Mikey Kenney, and played well-received shows at festivals including Purbeck Folk Festival and Green Man.

As this gig falls on a SUNDAY, doors will be earlier than usual at 6pm.

Support from Holly Blackshaw
