Green Heron music

The music of Green Heron stretches across the entire American folk landscape. Old-time, folk, bluegrass, country, and blues are all represented as the band brings the back porch to the stage. Featuring Betsy Heron (formerly Green) on fiddle, banjo and vocals, and Scott Heron on guitar, banjo and vocals, the duo has been sharing New England stages together since 2016. The two songwriters weave the contemporary with the traditional and meld high energy performances with emotion and finesse.

Betsy, brought up playing country and bluegrass with her family's band in rural Massachusetts, still plays alongside her three sisters in the band, The Green Sisters. Both Scott and Betsy are members of the quartet, Mama Ain't Dead. Before that, Scott spent several years in various metal bands touring New England and much of the country. Despite their very different backgrounds in music, the pair still draws from their roots when writing and performing and have found a common love for Americana music.

In August 2018, Green Heron released their debut album, "Folk Heroes." The seven-track album features six original songs and showcases their down-home style and a bare-bones arrangement comprised of fiddle, banjo, and guitar.

We recorded these seven songs while wrapped around an array of microphones in a cozy barn studio in Ashfield, MA on January 21st, 2018. Engineer Tom Mahnken was responsible for engineering, editing, mixing and of course, all the good vibes. With the exception of a single, overdubbed fiddle solo on the title track, all songs were performed and recorded live. We were accompanied by our good friend Adam Schultz whose harmony vocals we enlisted on both In Due Time and Folk Heroes.
