“A gentle, lulling delight” - The Guardian

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.

Singer, guitarist and harmonium player Jenny has a PHD in seabirds. Described by R2 Magazine as “a singer-songwriter who brings together the old and new with a rare skill”, her songs are earthy and wise; she sings them with beauty and power.
Singer and guitarist Ewan brings to SALT HOUSE a wealth of understanding and experience gained from collaboration with musicians from all corners of the scene. His songs are poetic and layered; his voice plaintive and from the heart.
Fiddler, viola player and vocalist Lauren’s arrangements hold a rich, deep, darkness flecked with gold. You can hear the Highlands in Lauren’s elegant bowing, and a knowledge of how to weave around a narrative. She plays with warmth, wisdom and soul.
You’ll also hear echoes of Pentangle, a touch of Dick Gaughan, 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.

“Music of this quality can’t be rushed; there’s a depth of understanding here that represents a lasting commitment to traditional music from all around the UK” - Folk Radio UK
