Solo and Duo Performances
Sally Carter performs solo as Sally’s Ukulele. She also performs with Keith Rea as a duo called Green Fieldz. Currently, due to COVID19 lockdown in Victoria, Australia, there are no live gigs scheduled. Online gigs will be advertised as they are scheduled.
Both Facebook pages for Sally’s Ukulele and Green Fieldz have many videos that can be viewed, showing performances with ukulele duo (Sally on tenor ukulele and Keith on baritone ukulele), Sally’s ukulele solo work, and Sally and Keith performing with Sally on fiddle/ukulele and Keith on guitar.
For Sally, all music is to be explored, and her solo performances as well as her performances with Keith reflect this. Genres performed include Celtic, jazz favourites, pop hits, ragtime, originals, gypsy jazz, bluegrass, country and oldtime. No stone is left unturned, and more is to be added to the list as time goes by!

Festival performances include Yass Irish and Celtic Festival, Beechworth Celtic Festival, Inverloch Jazz Festival, PAVE Festival, Frankston Music Festival, Mornington Main Street Festival, Mornington Winter Festival, Girgarre Music Muster, 4-String Festival (NZ)…….and more.
