Sally Ironmonger
Sally Ironmonger

Sally is a singer-songwriter based in Medway, writing and performing with Brian Carter, her long suffering husband, guitarist, and musical director. Their 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 – and we often sing stuff that people like to join in with.
Brian has worked as a professional and semi-professional musician all of his adult life.
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 Belshazzar’s Feast, Barbara Dickson, Jacqui McShee, Chris Wood & Jez Lowe. We also won the Milkmaid Folk Club Folk Song competition in 2016.
“What an absolutely brilliant evening at Bedworth Folk club with the fantastic Sally Ironmonger and Brian Carter….If I said ‘Wow’, it would be an understatement! To say that they gave a phenomenal performance during the evening and we could have stayed listening, laughing and joining in with their songs is an understatement. I can’t wait to see them again.” (Bedworth Folk Club, March 2017)
Admission £7 (members £5)
