Folk Harmony Group Hen Party was formed in 1995, when Sarah Morgan and Alison Muir (former members of Bread and Roses) teamed up with Heather Bradford to form a combination which became renowned not only for superb harmony singing, but also for an ability to communicate with and entertain an audience. Heatherís stylish lead vocals, Alisonís sumptuous alto voice, and Sarahís unerring sense of harmony combined to produce a sound that was unique and highly enjoyable.
The group ceased in 2003 with Alison's untimely death.
