Sally Sloane (1894-1982, New South Wales) was one of the most important Australian traditional singers & musicians, playing one-row melodeon, fiddle & mouth-organ. She had a glorious distinctive style & large repertoire, much of it recorded in the 1950s.

He will encourage attendees to play along with recordings of her to absorb her style, and will provide a handout & dots for selected tunes.
