Introducing… The Night Herons

The Night Herons were formed by Rachel Holmes and Dave Hemming in 2013 in Wallingford – singing a mix of pop, folk and jazz. They have focused on original songs with Rachel singing and Dave playing guitar and piano. They were joined in 2017 by Chris Baines (drums), Nick Hill (bass) and Tim Holmes (vocals), to perform original jazz songs and standards. They’ve performed in a tipi, a ruined church, a fishing lake and at various festivals and pubs. They’ve been using lockdown to record new versions of some of their songs.
