Taken from the album ‘Lay Your Dark Low’, an original song based on the legend of the Brahan Seer, words and music by Ewan MacPherson.
Acoustic four-piece Salt House is the meeting of four distinct musical minds on the Scottish scene. Their highly current sound is earthy, deep-rooted, yet eagerly progressive, built from grassroots folk with contemporary influences. 2013 saw the release of their debut ‘Lay Your Dark Low’ described as “the multifaceted work of a significant new collective” (The Herald). Boasting previous winners of BBC Young Folk Awards, a Scottish Jazz Award and many titles at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards, they now join together to make “a seamless team” (The Guardian). Their reworking of old ballads sits alongside their own writing and the instrumental section wraps Siobhan Miller’s striking, distinctively Scottish voice in a myriad of musical colour and textures.
