Sally grew up playing classical music. At age 30, she took up bass guitar and co-founded the Toasted Westerns with her friend, Jody Benjamin. So, her influences are from classical to country, and everything in between.
She moved from Manitoba to Ottawa several decades ago. Ottawa has always treated her well. She teaches piano (online these days) to students from age 6 to 87! Freelancing has taken her in many directions, from working with dance & theatre companies to accompanying instrumentalists, singers and choirs, to playing with several bands over the years.
Presently she plays clarinet & accordion with the Shirt Tearing Boys. Oh, and she leads singalongs – “Sing along with Sally” at Retirement Homes. She’s happy to be giving a workshop on “Piano Styles” at Grassroots this year. She has a CD of original songs, called The S Files.
