We are fresh back from our tour of Scotland, and we had a ball! We had sell out shows in Hawick and New Galloway, and had amazing hospitality in Edinburgh and Shetland. We would like to particularly thanks the Shetland Folk Festival Committee for being the most organised and hospitable festival ever!
Our new 7" vinyl single is HERE, and will be available from our online shop VERY SOON!
We are only home for a few weeks, before we embark on our next tour, 35 dates long...take a look on our GIGS page for more details!
NEW VIDEO - "Blank Sessions - Money Isn't Everything", filmed in Blank Studios whilst recording our 7" single. WATCH HERE!
Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra are one of the hardest working bands on the UK roots music circuit and have built a sizeable fan base following numerous tours and big festival appearances.
A hot seven-piece featuring guitars, mandolin, harmonica, accordion, trumpet, double bass and percussion, they’re more eclectic than most, mixing Western Swing, Gypsy Jazz, Hokum Blues, Ragtime, Cajun, and Roots-of-Country.
Their debut album, ‘Money Isn't Everything’, caused a sensation when it was released in 2012, winning a host of rave reviews – many of them 5-star.
The band played to their biggest audiences yet when American riverboat rag-time band, Pokey LaFarge & The South City Three invited them to open for them on their last big UK tour. Pokey has praised them as “the gem of the bunch” while comparing them to others.
Emily Miller of The Sweetback Sisters is another admirer and says that Rob and the band make music that “tickles your heart strings”
