Since the release of their 2013 debut 'Lay Your Dark Low', Scottish band Salt House have established themselves as a strong force on the folk scene. Known for their combination of new writing along with reworking of old words, their sound is rooted in the rich British song-writing tradition.

2017 heralds the arrival of a new voice for Salt House, and the first performances and recordings with Jenny Sturgeon, 'a singer-songwriter who brings together the old and new with a rare skill' R2 Magazine.


Ewan MacPherson - guitar, mandola, vocals, jaws harp
Jenny Sturgeon - vocals, harmonium, shruti box, guitar
Lauren MacColl - fiddle, viola, vocals


"One of the most interesting and exciting bands to emerge in the last few years" Mike Harding

"Imaginatively creative songs and startling freshness to traditional material" fRoots

"A significant new collective" The Herald

"They are a seriously talented group of musical raconteurs." Bright Young Folk
