About The Band
Over the last three years, songwriter and vocalist Sally Harris has been quietly building a repertoire of songs that bring together a love of history, mythology, traditional song, tunes and sessions. Together with one of Australia’s most well known and respected folk musicians, Rebecca Wright, these stories are brought to life with exquisite cello lines, heart melting harmonies and a delicately handled guitar.
Born in the north of England, Sally retains strong links with her birth culture through music. Though relatively new as a performer on the folk music circuit, she has quickly built a reputation as a songwriter and performer to be watched. Her songs draw on the traditions of Anglo-Celtic tunes and story telling, and combine these with contemporary arrangements and ideas.
Since winning the Declan Affley Award for Emerging Talent at the National Folk Festival in 1999, Rebecca has become well known on the Australian and international folk circuit, not only as a solo singer-songwriter, but increasingly as guest cello-singer with a range of notable artists including Fred Smith, Mark Cryle and Cloudstreet. Rebecca also often performs in a duo with her Scots husband Donald McKay, and with the Scottish dance band, The Ceilidh Clan.
