Lord of the Dance


“Sally Minnearʼs angelic vocals....I could listen to her all day and never lose interest”


Daughter of multi instrumentalist Kerry Minnear of the hugely respected and influential ʼ70ʼs progressive band Gentle Giant, Sally has been steeped in music throughout her life, with her brother and sister also being successful musicians. Sally had a minor hit with the song “For You” aged just 18, before forming the acoustic duo ʻCreatures of Habitʼ as a vehicle for her own songs.


After completing a music degree, during which time she played fiddle and sang in a popular traditional Irish band, Sally secured the featured vocalist role in Michael Flatleyʼs hugely successful dance spectacular ʻLord of the Danceʼ. Sally toured with the production for several years, before leaving to start a family. She is now much in demand as a session singer and has contributed vocals to many projects, with artists such as Dave Bainbridge (3 solo albums), Dave Brons, John Holden, several dance music artists, Mistyʼs Big Adventure, Mexican guitarist Pablo Ortiz (singing some parts in Spanish!). She also sings backing vocals with the legendary progressive rock band Pendragon, and has sung live with the Dave Kerzner Band and Lifesigns. She occasionally sings with her dad Kerry.

Interesting facts:

"I have a short 'toe-thumb' on my left hand. It's never stopped me playing instruments, though Chopin may be (literally) forever beyond my reach :-). I once took the wrong exit coming off stage & got caught up in the rigging/curtain, I had to be quietly rescued by the stage hand whilst the show went on! I also like to dip chips in vanilla milkshake."
