|As part of the dynamic duo of Sandi and Sally, Sally Flynn has left an lasting impression for Welk fans with her energy, beauty and sense of humor.
And for the last thirty years, Sally has also been part of another dynamic duo, as Clay Hart's wife and singing partner, in the same tradition of Guy & Ralna.
Sally Flynn was born in Ontario, Oregon on July 23, 1946....and began singing while she was a child. While attending Brigham Young University, she met fellow student Sandi Griffiths in the school's Program Bureau enetertainment group. The two became friends and performed together as a group, working at Disneyland, getting signed to a record deal at Capitol Records and being part of a USO tour through Vietnam. In 1967, the duo auditioned for Lawrence Welk at the Hollywood Bowl where out of 250 performers, were chosen thanks to the efforts of the song they sang, " I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter."
They made their Welk debut on January 6, 1968 and were made regulars a few weeks later.
In 1972, Sally decided to leave the show to pursue a solo career, initally as a hoofer on Broadway and as a soloist. Two years later in December 1974, she married Clay Hart, the Welk show's featured country singer who she met while a member of the music makers. The two decided to continue performing, this time as an husband-and-wife singing team. They have been since, served as opening acts for Red Skelton, Juliet Prowse, The Statler Brothers and Barbara Mandrell just to name a few. They have also continued to headline at major county and state fairs and appeared on television, including hosting the TNN's home improvement show, "Modeling and Redecorating Today".
In recent years, Sally along with Clay have hosted many of the wraparounds for the Welk show reruns on PBS and have toured as part of the "Forever Blowing Bubbles" tour of Welk alumni.
Today, where the Harts call home, they divide their time between Florida and Washington.
