Heather Ferrier

Heather Ferrier is an accordionist and clog dancer from Stockport, now based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Her music is steeped in the music and dance traditions of the North West whilst also pushing the boundaries of contemporary accordion and clog dance composition by incorporating contemporary harmony and polyrhythms. Heather has received acclaim for her live and studio work with the likes of Balter and Kathryn Tickell, and her debut solo single “CIRCLES” has been favourably reviewed by NARC magazine, in addition to receiving radio play from BBC Radio Newcastle and other grassroots radio stations. In 2022, Heather will be releasing her first EP “From the Ashes”, which explores the cycle of emotions experienced over the course of the pandemic, from fear to acceptance and the various points in between.
