Heather Dale cheerfully disregards the stereotypical limits for both folk singer-songwriters and Celtic balladeers. Tapping into the continuing evolution of Celtic peoples worldwide, this Canadian recording artist offers a new type of Celtic music for the 21st century: a playful, passionate blend of tradition and innovation. "Her music is powerful stuff, reminiscent of Loreena McKennitt and Sarah McLachlan but with a depth and resonance rooted in its mythic sources." (Vancouver Sun)
With the release of her fifth CD 'The Road to Santiago', Heather embarked on a three-year odyssey, which saw her playing concerts across North America and Europe: from Budapest to London to San Francisco. Her original songs deliver cunning commentary on honest love, self-image, sexual tensions, civil disobedience and a variety of other topics, with musical influences ranging from Celtic folk to modern blues and world music. Released in 2005 on her own Amphis Music label, 'The Road to Santiago' showcases the vibrancy of Heather Dale's own personal journey.
Heather Dale tours full-time (100+ concerts per year) across North America and Europe. Recordings by Heather Dale include: The Gabriel Hounds (2008), The Hidden Path: Live & Rarities (2006), The Road to Santiago (2005), May Queen (2003), This Endris Night (2002), Call The Names (2001), and The Trial of Lancelot (2000).
