"Talent and years of dedication have created a guitarist of the first order"
The Quintessential Review


Heather Cartwright's musical style is an amalgamation of solo-fingerstyle, traditional Scottish rhythm guitar, and song accompaniment. Years of dedication in the lead up to and during her time at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland resulted in graduating with a first-class honours degree in Traditional music. Although originally from Cumbria, Heather now bases herself in Glasgow's vibrant music scene. As well as presenting herself as a solo artist, Heather is in duos with Scots Singer of the Year (2022), Beth Malcolm, and Sam Mabbett (accordion), one of Scotland's most highly regarded musicians. She also regularly collaborates with other singers such Hannah Rarity (Young Traditional Musician of the Year, 2018) and Ainsley Hamill, both around Scotland and in Europe.
