Sally Ironmonger

April 24th: Sally Ironmonger

I am a singer-songwriter based in Medway, writing and performing with Brian Carter,my long suffering 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.Lets 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,And we often sing stuff that people like to join in with.Brian has worked as a professional and semi-professional musician all his adult life over the years he has developed a style which fuses jazz,folk and latin to produce a unique mix of melody and bass rhythms,I really only found my wings since we met in the 1990s-although I always liked to sing,and strum guitar to accompany myself,it was Brian who promised to put my name up in chalk
