About

Green Heron music

The music of Green Heron stretches across the entire folk landscape. Old-time, folk, bluegrass, country, celtic and blues music 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 2017. The two songwriters weave the contemporary with the traditional and deliver high energy performances.

Betsy, brought up playing country music with her family's band in rural Massachusetts, still plays alongside her three sisters in The Green Sisters. Meanwhile, Scott spent several years in various metal bands touring New England and much of the country before discovering folk and bluegrass. 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 and folk music.

"If there was ever a recipe for treating the 'pandemic blues,' it's listening to the music of Green Heron. Multi-instrumentalists Betsy and Scott Heron … offer a comforting musical stew, featuring ingredients ranging from bluegrass to folk to vintage country. Their pairing of string instruments with beautiful vocal harmonies is uplifting and joyful."
New Hampshire Magazine
"'Folk Heroes' is bluegrass-y bliss. It's a shimmering debut by a youthful pair paving their path of being the next wave of folk heroes … great vocal harmonies, campfire pluckery, and all the reason in the world to keep it in constant rotation as you ease through the day-to-day."
Seacoast Edge
"Green Heron's newest album, Feet on the Floorboards is both refreshingly new and pleasantly antique."
The Monadnocker
"Truly natural performers, Green Heron effortlessly embody the look, sound and style of 'old time' American folk, forging a timelessness in their music that can be hard to find in modern performers."
