Sally Fingerett (born on December 25, 1955 in Chicago, Illinois) is a Jewish American folk singer/songwriter. She was a founding member of Four Bitchin' Babes, and is the only founding member who continues to perform and record with the band.
Fingerett joined the Chicago folk scene while a student at the University of Illinois at Chicago, inspired by such artists as Steve Goodman and John Prine. She later moved to Nashville, Tennessee and became the lead singer for the bluegrass band Buffalo Gals. She also toured with artists such as John Hartford and Bill Monroe before beginning her solo career.
She met and married producer Dan Green, and they collaborated on producing commercial music. Green produced four of Fingerett's solo CDs, as well as the Four Bitchin' Babes album Fax It, Charge It, Don't Ask Me What's For Dinner.
In 1994, Fingerett had to suspend recording and performing after contracting a virus that paralyzed her vocal cords. She recovered use of her voice a year later. Soon after, Christine Lavin passed a recording of Fingerett's song Home Is Where The Heart Is (about accepting people regardless of sexual orientation) to Peter, Paul and Mary, who covered the song on their album Lifelines. Later, she divorced Green, and created a one-woman comedy/music show, It's A Crazy World….But Where Else Would We Live...the Musical Musings of a Mental Yentl.
The group released their eighth CD, Diva Nation in October 2009, and continue a heavy concert schedule. See the group at www.fourbitchinbabes.com.
She currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with her husband Michael Stan and their three children; EJ, Max, and Aaron.
