Kirby's Story

Kirby Heard is a singer-songwriter who found her way from a big city in the Midwest to a sleepy southern town, and the love of her life. Having grown up surrounded by music, whether on the hi-fi spinning 60s folk classics, humorists, jazz, or singing with the church choir, Kirby’s first instrument was piano, expanding to flute and eventually, guitar. A summer counselor stint expanded the thirst to play and sing more and more. Some of the poems she wrote at camp were ‘turned into songs’ by fellow counselors.

Kirby arrived at songwriting rather late in life, and her musical career was fledged in 2012 when she co-founded Bob & Kirby’s Double H Bluegrass. The band recorded two of Kirby’s original songs on their 2016 release, Pieces of a Dream, including the song of thanks and tribute to Veterans everywhere, Not Forgotten. Now Kirby's "songs from the heart" take listeners on a journey of life’s highs & lows, and the people who make their company along the way, often bringing listeners memories of ‘a time back home’. Kirby’s solo project, Mama’s Biscuits, released November 2019, and gained positive reviews. Robert Christgau included Mama's Biscuits at #26 on his Dean's List for 2020.
