Rockin’ Sea Shanty band The Salts set sail on a UK tour of Venues and Festivals starting this week at the Wokingham Music Festival and including the Great British Folk Festival where they will be performing alongside the likes of Steeleye Span, Eddie Reader, Barbara Dickson, Tom Robinson and many more, as well as the Bude, Banbury & Sedgefield Folk Festival where they will be headlining and with live shows in Theatres and Arts Centres covering most parts of the England from Cornwall to Yorkshire.
The Salts have been described as one of the most exciting and energetic concepts around performing original material alongside their own interpretations of traditional songs we all know and love and their live shows are guaranteed to get the audience clapping and singing along. The band feature five seasoned musicians collectively performing a mixture of instruments as well as great harmonies and their latest album Brave on Braccan Records has received rave reviews and radio plays around the world.
The group seems like it is really enjoying the process of revitalising this often forgotten aspect of folk music, and the performances are suitably impassioned and rousing.
Brave is a fine undaunted second album and should do The Salts’ cause the world of good. – Living Tradition
