We are Sally’s Garden: John Wiesen (Guitar, Accordion and Vocals) and Sally Wiesen (Fiddle, Bohdran and Vocals). We sing and play acoustic Celtic music (Traditional Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Breton) as well as original compositions in the traditional style.
We are active professional musicians in the San Antonio area and have played at many local events and venues including the San Antonio Highland Games, the Alamo Irish Festival at the Arneson theater, the San Antonio Botanical Gardens "Gardens by Moonlight" event, the Cove, The Blue Cactus Cafe, Mad Dogs, The Republic of Texas, and Main Plaza as well many weddings, retirement homes and private parties. We also sponsor a free acoustic Celtic Jam on Sunday afternoons at Nine Lives Books.
Please listen to our demo containing a single seven minute track containing twelve short excerpts from our album, "The Swaying Branches". Our musical selections rousing pub songs, gentle haunting airs, as well as toe tapping jigs and reels to fit any occasion or venue. We will provide a full copy of our album to you upon request.
John is a songwriter with over 50 songs and tunes to his credit and is an accomplished singer and guitarist as well. He retired from the Air Force in 2006 after 20 years of service. His Scots-Irish heritage and interest in geneaology has provided inspiration for his songs and melodies. Sally plays the fiddle and Bodhran and joins John in vocal harmonies. Her beautiful interpretations of our music will transport you to the Emerald Isle and back to a simpler time.
