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.
A collaboration of writing and song from three of Scotland’s foremost performers; Jenny Sturgeon, Ewan MacPherson and Lauren MacColl.
The trio continue their love of recording ‘on location’ with this album, taking themselves to rural Argyllshire to finish writing and recording the songs which were crafted between their homes of Inverness-shire and Shetland.
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.
“A gentle, lulling delight” – The Guardian
