Heather Rankin was born in the picturesque village of Mabou, Cape Breton, the eleventh of Buddy and Kaye Rankin’s twelve children. Mabou is rich in Gaelic culture and tradition; a place where Celtic music and dance is tightly interwoven in the lives of its community.

Heather and her sisters, Raylene and Cookie, released a Christmas record in 1997, which included one of Heather’s original songs, “The Christmas Star.” The girls took their Christmas music on tour across the country almost every holiday season until 2010, sometimes playing with Canadian Symphonies. 

They made two Television Specials: A Rankin Christmas Cabaret and Home For Christmas. In 1999 Heather went to Scotland and Ireland to cohost a documentary about Celtic Music, called Celtic Tides. The next year Heather, Raylene and Cookie were invited to Martha’s Vineyard to record background vocals for Carly Simon’s record The Bedroom Tapes. Heather accompanied Simon during her Promotional Tour, which included performances on The View, Good Morning America and The Rosie O’Donnell Show, as well as a concert in Bryant Park, during which Heather sang backup vocals on Simon’s hit song “You’re So Vain.”

In 2007 Heather, Raylene, Jimmy and Cookie reunited and released their sixth studio album with EMI, Reunion, which featured Heather’s original song “Nothing to Believe In.” Their seventh, These Are The Moments, was released in 2009, and included Heather’s song “I Would.” They toured between 2007 and 2012 and in 2013 The Rankin Family received a special 25th Anniversary Music Award at the East Coast Music Awards in Halifax. 

Heather’s voice has been featured as a guest artist on a multitude of albums, including Will Ackerman’s Grammy Award winning Hearing Voices. She, Jimmy and Cookie sing on the track “Go Tell It On The Mountain” on Johnny Reid’s Platinum Edition of his album A Christmas Gift to You and they appear with Natalie MacMaster in the music video, which was shot in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Heather, Cookie and Jimmy rang in 2014 performing in Summerside at the New Year’s Eve Finale with Burton Cummings and Doc Walker.
