Sallie Mack : Biography

Sallie MackI have been teaching guitar for over 25 years, and have been a touring professional singer/songwriter and rhythm guitarist for over 35 years. I began playing guitar as a teenager and joined my first band in college at The Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington.

Upon graduation, I moved to Alaska and joined The Alaska North Star Band, a traditional bluegrass band, touring state-wide and opening for renowned musicians such as Bill Monroe and Asleep At The Wheel. I then formed my own band, Anything Goes, which performed throughout the state.

Upon moving to Vermont in 1993, I co-founded the Ripton Community Coffee House and co-directed it until 2003. In 1996, I was selected for the Best of Vermont compilation CD, and in 2002 I was a finalist for Solar Fest Song Writing Contest. I composed a song called Midwife as the title song for the documentary, Catching Babies. My band Talisman performed at the 2001 Earth Charter at Shelburne Farms with musician Paul Winter and Jane Goodall as the keynote speaker.

When I am not teaching guitar at home, teaching homeopathic medicine at Johnson State College or practicing as a homeopathic physician, I am sailing on Lake Champlain and gardening in my yard and playing with my dog, Chickadee!
