    Heron LIVE at the Kings Arms in Salford - a benefit gig for cancer Heron first came to the record buying public’s attention in 1971. Their first album “HERON” was recorded in a field in Berkshire. The natural ambience and inclusion of birdsong on the tracks distinguished them immediately from contemporary bands. With the release of their first (Maxi) single “Only a Hobo” and its frequent plays on Radio One they were invited to appear on John Peel’s radio show. As part of the legendary “Penny Concert” tour promoted by Red Bus it seemed their success was confirmed. However due to a shortage of vinyl and a subsequent delivery strike it became impossible to buy the single. Undaunted they went on to record a double second album, “Twice as nice and half the price”, which now has a cult following throughout the world, especially in Japan. More then 35 years the band members went their own way and finally in 2010 the original line up got back together to record a new album for the Japanese record label ‘ARM’. The album was released in 2011 called ‘Simple As One Two Three’. Currently just having finished a new ‘Dylan’ album they decided to hit the road again.
