Heather Bishop is dedicated to an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just world. Whether she’s playing your heartstrings with her rich and versatile voice, tickling your funny bone with her quirky brand of humour, or reaching into your heart, telling her story of how she got here, Heather invariably brings her audiences to tears and to their feet. She always leaves people ready to roll up their sleeves and take on the world. Like the crooked man, Heather shares with us the crooked miles she has walked and how each has informed her journey home to herself.
Heather is an accomplished musician/singer-songwriter, social activist, keynote speaker, visual artist, published author, and tradeswoman. And, her country would concur– as Heather was awarded the Order of Canada in 2005. Highly admired for her social activism, Heather has spent the past 4 1/2 decades championing feminism and the environment, and speaking out against racism, homophobia, and discrimination of any kind. In 1976, she piloted and taught the first Pre-Trades Training for Women Course in Canada helping advance the financial and greater wellbeing of women and artists in their professional lives. Heather is best known around the world as a talented and respected musician, having released 14 acclaimed folk and children’s albums, winning numerous JUNO nominations, Parents’ Choice Gold Awards, Western Canadian Music Awards, and NAPPA Awards. Her latest CD, released in the spring of 2009, is entitled My Face is a Map of My Time Here. In 2011, Heather released a hardcover coffee table book of her artwork by the same name.
