Salt House
Huam

***PLEASE NOTE ALL CDS & PRINTS WILL BE DELIVERED FOR RELEASE DAY - 20.03.20***

Huam’ , (scots n the call of an owl) is the third collection of songs from Salt House, and their second pairing with producer Andy Bell.

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.

The album includes 6 new songs written by the band and new settings of 19th and 20th Century poetry by Scotland’s Robert Thomas, Nan Shepherd and Robert Williams Buchanan alongside American, Emily Dickinson. This record sees them solidify their reputation as fine interpreters of words; 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 and landscape.

The group’s meticulous attention to detail, shared passions and care for their craft sees them create an album that celebrates their love of song and tells a story of our times. They continue their exploration of old texts, whilst their own worlds reflect shared feelings of hope and wonder in the current world we share. (Their music is, in part, a contribution to the stream of artists creating work to counter a turbulent world, some light in the dark.)

Salt House are vocalist, guitarist and harmonium player Jenny Sturgeon, fiddler, viola player and vocalist LaurenMacColl, and vocalist and guitarist Ewan MacPherson.
