Folk at the New Room: Salt House

17 October 2024
7.30pm - doors 7pm.

New songs that sound as if they’ve always been here. Ancient ballads woken up. Poems given the melodies they’ve long deserved

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. Salt House are Jenny Sturgeon, Ewan MacPherson and Lauren MacColl.

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.

7.30pm - doors 7pm. Join us 6-7pm for our informal folk music session in the cafe-bar.
