After graduating from Newcastle University’s Folk & Traditional Music degree course in 2012, Rob has spent the last decade touring with his band Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra.  He has toured worldwide, released multiple albums, played festivals such as Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Larmer Tree, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, and received national radio play from BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, and BBC Radio 4.

As well as performing, Rob has also got over 10 years of experience in independent concert promotion, and has been the Events Manager at The Globe Newcastle since 2020.

Rob is a keen record collector and an enthusiast for early American music, blues, country, jazz and R&B, as well as traditional folk music, Latin and African.

Still based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Rob is now thrilled to be working as a booking agent for Strada, and building his roster.
