** Postponed **

“A gentle, lulling delight.” – The Guardian

Salt House is Jenny Sturgeon, Ewan MacPherson and Lauren MacColl. Their album Undersong has been praised by folk bible fRoots for bringing “startling freshness” to the British song tradition.

 

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.

Amy Papiransky

** Postponed **

Originally from Keith in the North-East of Scotland, Amy has been gathering and writing songs over the last eight years. A music teacher by trade, Amy’s debut release Read Me Write is a lesson in flawless vocal dexterity and heartfelt song writing, the result of which is a contemporary, hypnotic and soaring sound with a side of sass, funk and class.

Recorded in late 2018, the 11-track record features a stellar line-up of seasoned Scottish musicians including Charlie Stewart, Graham Rorie, Innes Watson, John Lowrie, Phil Cunningham, Rory Matheson and Ross Ainslie. The Scottish songstress is a classically trained pianist and violinist and this musical ear combines with clever and creative song writing to wonderful effect on Read Me Write.
