Sally Ironmonger

Sally says:

"I am a singer-songwriter based in Medway, writing and performing with Brian Carter, my husband, guitarist, and musical director.

Our aim is to entertain, with songs that make you laugh, or cry, or just think – and make a connection with listeners and audiences.

We tend to get categorised as folk musicians – I guess because what we do tends to be stripped down, unplugged, story based.  Let’s not get into a debate about what folk music is, suffice to say that what we do is contemporary, with a nod to traditional themes.

Brian has worked as a professional and semi-professional musician all of his adult life.  Over the years he has developed a style which fuses jazz, folk & latin to produce a unique mix of melody and bass rhythms.  I only really found my wings since we met in the 1990s – although I always loved to sing, and strummed guitar to accompany myself, it was Brian who promised to ‘put my name up in chalk’.

Over the years we have written commissions for BBC documentaries and Broadstairs Folk Week, we ran the First Friday Folk club at the Tom Thumb Theatre, Margate, and have been supporting artists for Barbara Dickson, Jacqui McShee, Chris Wood & Jez Lowe.

Sometimes you can see us out and about playing as a trio with virtuoso harmonica player, Al Clarke."
