Salt House have been a mainstay of the folk scene for a decade. New songs that sound as if they’ve always been here. Ancient ballads woken up. Poems given the melodies they’ve long deserved. Songs strong rooted in place, people and their shared love of the natural world.
The trio features top musicians Lauren MacColl on fiddle, viola, vocals Jenny Sturgeon on guitar, keys, vocals and Ewan MacPherson on guitar and vocals.
The band’s reputation as fine interpreters of words both old and new has been solidified over the past few years with acclaimed album releases and extensive touring both at home and in mainland Europe. Salt House are Jenny Sturgeon, Ewan MacPherson and Lauren MacColl.
This spring marks the launch of their latest studio album ‘Riverwoods’ – a musical response to the feature-length documentary of the same name made by rewilding charity ‘SCOTLAND: The Big Picture’, and recently featured on Channel 5. This – their third release on Hudson Records with Andy Bell – is a collection of both songs and instrumentals inspired by the journey of the atlantic salmon and the much-needed biodiversity along our river systems. “I encourage you to immerse yourself in this beautiful album, to ‘feel’ it and, crucially, to hear its message.” Pete Cairns, Executive Director, STBP.
