The Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week commencing Saturday 19 October is the launch CD album from acoustic four-piece Salt House who are a meeting of four distinct musical minds on the Scottish music scene.
Salt House’s debut album is called ‘Lay Your Dark Low’ and has a Scottish launch at a Edinburgh House Concert on Saturday 26 October, a few weeks ahead of the official launch on 11 November 2013.
Their highly current sound is earthy, deep-rooted, yet eagerly progressive, built from grassroots folk with contemporary influences.
Boasting previous winners of BBC Young Folk Awards and a Scottish Jazz Award, the band will play their first live dates to coincide with the release of their debut album this autumn.
Salt House are Siobhan Miller (vocals, harmonium), Ewan MacPherson (guitar, banjo, mandolin, vocals), Lauren MacColl (viola, fiddle) and Euan Burton (double bass).
Ross Macfadyen talks to Siobhan Miller about the music from Salt House and her involvement in this new band.
Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week, Saturday 19 October, 12 noon and 12 midnight and Monday 21 October 6.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
