About Heron

Folk rock attraction Heron was one of several groups signed to both the Red Bus agency and Dawn label, home of Mungo Jerry and Mike Cooper. The unit’s grasp of melody was unveiled on their self-titled 1970 debut, released to coincide with the ambitious Penny Concert Tour on which the band shared a bill with progressive rock acts Comus and Titus Groan and Afro-rock practitioners Demon Fuzz. Heron, whose line-up included Roy Apps (guitar/vocals), Steve Jones (keyboards), Tony Pook (vocals/percussion), Mike Finesilver (bass) and Terry Gittings (drums), then completed a second set, Twice As Nice & Half The Price, before disbanding. They reunited in the 90s, releasing a number of new studio albums.
