About Sally Swanson
Sally Swanson is an actor-musician based in Glasgow.
She has played the accordion and spoken Gaighlig since she was five years old and growing up the Highlands meant she was never far from a riotous ceilidh. Since graduating in 2018 from the MA Musical Theatre course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland she has been performing all over Scotland with gypsy jazz band The Old World News and swing group The Ragtime Dolls.
Sally also works as musical director for the Voice of the Town choir and has recently finished a panto season in the Jack and the Beanstalkat the Gaiety Theatre in Ayr. She is delighted to be joining the cast of The Cheviot, the Stag and the Black Black Oil, especially since her family have a personal connection to the show: her grandparents’ farm- Kirkton Farm-, which has only recently been bought back from Sutherland estates, is mentioned by name in the show.
