About Us

Heritage Song is led by Scott Russell, Sheffield-based musician / guitarist / composer / songwriter / educator. Scott works in Museums and Heritage, and works in partnership with a range of organisations to enrich projects with creativity and performance.

The work Heritage Song produces strives to be carefully researched, skillfully presented and always thought-provoking. We are fascinated by Social and Industrial history, and the role of ordinary lives in extraordinary stories.
