Your chance to savour the sound of Salt House at the Old Town Hall


If the feelgood musical Sunshine On Leith has increased your appetite for folk-tinged melodies from north of the border, then take the high road to Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town Hall on Saturday.

Pulling in to the High Street arts base for one night only will be highly-regarded Scottish foursome Salt House.

Their 8pm date is no Proclaimers tribute, despite the accents.

This talented foursome boasting two previous BBC Young Musician award winners are described as ‘indie-traditional’ – which is one way of summing up a fresh sound built from grassroots folk and inventive musical twists presented through song, fiddle, guitar/mandolin and double bass.

Siobhan Miller is one of the foremost singers of her generation, a fine interpreter of both contemporary and her native Scots song. Ewan MacPherson’s guitar and mandolin background is firmly fixed in the Scottish roots scene.

Fiddle player Lauren MacColl is deeply rooted in the traditions of the Highlands, while bass player Euan Burton has been on the Scottish jazz scene for nearly a decade
