The new album from Salt House sees them solidify their reputation as fine interpreters of words both old and new.
Huam, (scots n the call of an owl) is their third collection of songs, and the second pairing with producer Andy Bell, and will be released in March 2020 on Hudson Records.
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. 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 the talented Jenny (Singer, guitarist and harmonium), Ewan (Singer and guitarist) and Lauren (Fiddler, viola player and vocalist) plus echoes of Pentangle, a touch of Dick Gaughan and 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
