After many years of not doing a full on concert in Winnipeg, Heather Bishop is coming out of retirement to give us not only a concert with her two favourite Winnipeg giants beside her — Laurie MacKenzie and Don Benedictson — but also an Art Opening showcasing some of her latest work There will also be a cross section of her portfolio on display and for sale. This Art Opening is a Winnipeg first for Heather. It will be a gathering of old and new friends in an intimate experience with one of our own music industry icons. Tickets are $25 in advance.

After more than four decades of crooked miles, Heather Bishop has deduced that she is an alchemist and metaphysical artist. Her work transforms beliefs while simultaneously rooting you in the truth that magic is afoot. Armed with only her steel string guitar and rich voice she has traveled the world leaving beauty and light in her wake. In 1979 she created one of the first independent music labels in Canada, releasing 15 multi award-winning recordings.
Before launching her career in music, Heather began as a visual artist, studying Fine Arts at the University of Regina. After graduating in 1969, she began a life long love affair with oil paint and, although touring kept her from her easel, she has returned to her wonderland of colours. A published author, her first book, my face is a map of my time here, is a hardcover edition of her artwork. Heather’s most recent recording is entitled The Montreal Sessions.
Any spare time finds Heather plying one of the many trades skills she possesses: building a house or wiring a barn or being an innovator in green building techniques.
Heather Bishop has dedicated herself to activism and, for her life's work, has received The Order of Canada, The Order of Manitoba, and an Honorary Doctorate of Laws. Most recently she was called upon to sit on the Independent Advisory Board for Senate Appointments. Retiring from music, Heather has continued to live many lifetimes in her current avatar, morphing most recently into an educator, keynote speaker, and Master Hypnotherapist. Her vision is of a world that is socially just, environmentally sound, and spiritually fulfilling.
