Sally Andrews is a singer and piano accordion player from Wisemans Ferry, New South Wales.
She learned classical piano from a young age, and grew up playing the organ at Ebenezer Uniting Church – the oldest church in Australia, located on the banks of the Hawkesbury River.
She was given an accordion at the age of 14 and has never looked back at classical piano since.
She recently performed at the 2019 Tablelands Folk Festival in Yungaburra, Queensland, at Brigadoon in 2019, and is a regular at the St Albans Folk Festival.
She has played in sessions all over the world, from King O’Malleys in Canberra, to McGintys in Cairns, O’Donoghues in Dublin, and Slainte in New York.
Sally is particularly interested in the intersections between Celtic folk music and European history.
She will be singing Scottish ballads that provide snapshots of life across several centuries of religious, political and military change. The accordion she has brought today is a Hohner made around 1965.
