Heron

Profile:
Berkshire "Folkies" (folk rock band) Heron from Chichester, UK were formed in 1967. Their origin can be traced all the way to the Dolphin Folk Club in Maidenhead 1967, where Tony Pook (vocals), Roy Apps (guitar, vocals) and Robert Collins (guitar) first came together as a collective, inspired by a certain Mr. Bob Dylan and the early The Incredible String Band. Others members were keyboardist Steve Jones (20) and G.T. Moore.

By the following year, Collins was out of the picture, but with the addition of fellow local folk club habitués Gerald Thomas "G.T." Moore (guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Martin Hayward (guitar), they settled down to become Heron. Moore was a particularly interesting acquisition, having led brass-based soul band Gerald T. Moore and The Memphis Gents, local heroes to Reading mods before Moore had decamped to Maidenhead to attend art school. In 2008, Gerry Power joined in (vocals, guitar, mandolin, percussion).

Heron took the rural conceit a stage further by actually recording both of their albums in a field. Both releases - their 1970 debut album 'Heron', as well as the following year’s specially-priced double LP 'Twice As Nice And Half The Price - were made within the soft white underbelly of the British folk rock movement, and now warrant hefty price tags amongst collectors of the rarer artefacts of that particular genre.
