Please note this show has been rescheduled to Friday 19 March 2021 8pm. The event was originally advertised as taking place on Friday 12 June 2020.Salt House’s new album, Huam, solidifies their reputation as fine interpreters of words both old and new.
Songs are central to Salt House. New songs that sound as if they’ve always been here. Ancient ballads woken up. Poems given the tunes they’ve long deserved. Songs about place, politics, landscape and birds. With Huam, the trio continue their love of recording on location - taking themselves to rural Argyllshire to finish writing and recording the songs which were crafted between their homes of Inverness-shire and Shetland.
Consisting of singer, guitarist and harmonium player Jenny Sturgeon, singer and guitarist Ewan MacPherson, and fiddler, viola player and vocalist Lauren MacColl, Salt House bring together their experiences and skills to create poetic, earthy and layered songs, amplified by rich and deep arrangements and powerful, warm and heartfelt vocals.
You’ll hear echoes of Pentangle, a touch of Dick Gaughan, murmurs of Scandinavian and Scots, all woven into a music that’s traditional and new. The group’s meticulous attention to detail, shared passions and care for their craft sees Salt House soar.
‘Music of this quality can’t be rushed; there’s a depth of understanding here that represents a lasting commitment to traditional music from all around the UK’
