About the event

“A gentle, lulling delight” – The Guardian 

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 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.   Their latest studio album ‘Riverwoods’ - is 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.  The collection of both songs and instrumentals is 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.  The Salt House sound is carefully honed - melancholy viola entangled round rich vocals and double-guitar interplay. There’s a strong connection to place in their music - with the band based between the Scottish Highlands and Shetland. Taking their name from a dock in Ewan’s native Liverpool, Salt House draw on a wide range of influence from folk, traditional, and singer-songwriter worlds that they inhabit. Whether it’s on the festival stage or in an intimate theatre, the band share their songs with an empathy that has won them fans far and wide.

This particular gig will be in celebration of their new album due to be released on Hudson Records this Autumn.
