Sister Swire is actually Sarah Swire – a performing artist (actor, choreographer and musician) with work spanning across stage, screen and television. After graduating from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Swire set out on a world tour with the band Belle and Sebastian. By the age of 25, she had creatively directed, choreographed and played sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, Scotland’s Olympic Hydro Stadium and Glastonbury Music Festival.
As a music director, Swire has arranged and composed original music for the BBC, Avalon Arts and The National Theatre of Scotland. As an actor, she is best known for starring in and choreographing the MGM/Orion musical Anna and the Apocalypse. She has two recurring roles on Murdoch Mysteries as the evil twin sisters Dorothy & Amelia Ernst, with an upcoming role on the 3rd season of The Boys. Above all, she is a live stage performer trying to make sense of a film/tv career, and a songwriter attempting to weave theatrics into the Canadian indie music scene. This band is her scheme to thread the needle.
