Album Notes
Sally Ironmonger is a singer-songwriter based in Medway, in the South East of England, who writes and performs in collaboration with her husband, Brian Carter.

Her songs sit very comfortably within the genres of folk, roots, poetry and comedy, and have featured on a number of BBC documentaries.

The songs also have the ability to trap the listener into thinking .... I've been there ... I've done that. Familiarity - yes, that's the word.

Brian Carter is guitarist, co-writer, musical director and husband. He has had a varied musical career, playing guitar professionally since his teens, and has developed a style which fuses jazz, folk & latin to produce a unique mix of melody and bass rhythms. You can't learn it from a book!

"Love it when you hear a great song for the first time. Happened last night when Sally Ironmonger performed her song "No Ships" at the Tom Thumb Theatre." (Jez Lowe, June 2013)

"Really enjoyed sharing a night in concert with Sally & Brian. Good raw British lyrics with no frills and great songs about old Kent and nostalgia further afield. You could say it was a raspberry ripple moment, a bit tasty and a real treat, my pleasure guys." (Richard Digance, June 2012)

“Sally Ironmonger is a Kent singer who also happens to write terrific songs, songs which resonate with your own experiences, and make you laugh and recall when exactly the same thing happened to you! Accompanied by husband Brian Carter on guitar Sally’s great vocals and engaging stage presence bring a breath of fresh air to any occasion. In addition to the singing, Sally is a great MC and host for intimate venues, with the rare knack of making guests and audience feel completely at ease. Highly recommended for clubs and festivals alike, this duo are a well-kept secret who deserve not to be!” (Kim Headley, Artistic Director Broadstairs Folk Festival, July 2014)

"Sally Ironmonger turned the sailing barge Edith May into the boat that rocked! Her songs are crafted using wit, good humour and local knowledge, creating music that people enjoy and relate to. Mixed in with a few sing along pop classics, we cannot wait to welcome her and the band back aboard. Thank you Sally!" (Ed Gransden, Edith May Sailing Barge, Sweeps Festival Rochester, May 2012)

'Medway's response to Victoria Wood provides an evening of poignant songs - many with a local insight into the magnificence and uniqueness of Medway - delivered with passion, aggression, compassion and a nod to sentimentality. Don't knock where you live!' Doug Hudson, Sweeps Festival Director, April 2012

"Just the thing to cheer up a dank January! Everyone enjoyed themselves hugely and your mix of original, local songs and carefully selected material from 'the tradition' and elsewhere was clever, funny, sad and beautifully sung and accompanied by brilliant guitar work. Need I say anything about that voice? It brought hairs up on the back of necks! Hardened, traddie club-goers were melted." Mary Henderson, Chair & Secretary, Faversham Folk Club, January 2011.
