Salt House – 12th June

Fundraising is an excellent reason for bringing a much acclaimed new band bristling with talent to play in Irvine. The band is called Salt House and they are appearing at Irvine’s Harbour Arts centre on Thursday 12th June.
The concert has been put together by local Piper Thomas Turner to raise funds for The Church of The Nazarene and plainly he has very good contacts in the music world when a band of the calibre of Salt House has been booked to appear.
Salt House is a four-piece acoustic band featuring Siobhan Miller, Ewan MacPherson, Lauren MacColl and Euan Burton. Their debut album ‘Lay Your Dark Low’ was released last year to wide critical acclaim. Salt is for seasoning and preserving and so is an apt name for the style of this new band playing music which is described as earthy, deep-rooted and eagerly progressive.
Trad ballads sit alongside self-penned material as well as more contemporary music with the three extremely talented instrumentalists providing a perfect backdrop for the distinctive singing of Siobhan Miller. Between the four of them, Siobhan, Ewan, Lauren and Euan have amassed a host of individual awards including Jazz as well as Folk.
Salt House is Siobhan Miller on vocals and harmonium, Ewan MacPherson on guitars, banjos, mandolin and vocals, Lauren MacColl on viola and fiddle and Euan Burton on double bass.
Tickets to hear Salt House at The HAC on Thursday 18th June at 7.30pm are £10 and are available from The HAC or from Thomas Turner on 01294 275972. It has all the makings of a really good concert.
