Having graduated in 2008 from The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama with a first class honors BA Scottish music Heather went on to complete a postgraduate diploma in Scottish music performance.
Heather has traveled extensively in Scotland and her music has taken her as far afield as Germany, Denmark, Latvia and New York, playing for dignitaries like Jack McConnell and Prince Albert of Monaco. She also provided backing music for Tom Conti's rendition of A Man's A Man for A' That during Tartan week in America in 2006, and returned in 2009.
