The Salts are one of the most exciting and energetic folk concepts around, performing original material alongside their own interpretations of traditional songs we all know and love. The band features five seasoned musicians:- Brian Doran, Lee Collinson, Jeremy Hart, Richard Nash and Tim Cantrell producing great harmonies backed by thumping beats and delivered with boundless energy and enthusiasm. Guaranteed to get the crowd singing and dancing along. Their latest album ‘Brave’ has received rave reviews and radio plays around the world.
“unafraid to blend, develop and move folk forward while still retaining an abiding and healthy respect for tradition. And sometimes along the way taking the tradition to places it never thought to go. And that’s a prime-mover in the music of The Salts and their album ‘Brave’ … freedom and fearlessness to invent.” – Folk Words
‘Incredibly gutsy stuff with a big sound.’- Mike Harding
