Tickets are £3 and are available on the door, but The Tabernacle is pretty darn popular and pretty darn small so if you're really keen on grabbing a ticket, you might be better off buying one online in advance which you can do so by clicking on the photo above that will take you to their site.

MARCH 28TH ALBUM LAUNCH PARTY


Hurray hurray! I'd like to thank everyone who came along to the release of 'Scrambled Mess' on Saturday night from the bottom of my heart. You absolutely crammed the evening with love and happiness and how could I ask for more than that? 


The launch was held in the beautiful Welsh Academy of Art. The evening consisted of lots of chatting, a short set by myself and a bit of a knees up afterwards. Thanks to the brilliant photographer Luc Bunt for taking some performance shots. 


So, the album is now purchasable (how exciting), but sadly not yet via the internet. Please do contact me for hard copies if you're interested. No matter where you're from, we'll work out a way to get it to you, even if I have to send it by pigeon. 





Seren the Heron supporting Sam Dowden at the Globe at Hay


I'll be supporting the marvellous songwriter Sam Dowden on Friday, 13th March at the Globe in Hay on Wye. I'll be kicking off at 8pm, followed by Sam. You can purchase tickets in advance on the Globe at Hay website by clicking on the picture above.

Bristol Fun 


This Winter, I've moved house to slightly nearer the border. This has given me an opportunity to travel to Bristol more often and explore its exciting music scene. As a result of my meddling, I've managed to secure a set of gigs in various venues in Bristol in the Spring. Watch this space to find out the times and places! 


Above you can see a snap of me playing at the Fleece, Bristol, on Feburary 1st.

'Scrambled Mess' ALBUM RELEASE



I know I have kept myself to myself on the social networks these past few months, but don't worry, I'm back with lots of news! While you've been shivering through the cold Winter months, I've been recording my debut album, 'Scrambled Mess'.


I have been lucky enough to work with the fabulous producer, Adam Fuest, at Twin Peaks Studio who has helped me create a record I am proud of. I have just finished designing my artwork and sent it off to the manufacturers, and above you can see a draft of the front cover. 


Stay tuned for news on the release date which will be confirmed VERY shortly- keep your diary pretty clear for mid March
