EPK Old Salt

LIVE in Room 13

OLD SALT IS AN INTERNATIONAL AMERICANA BAND PULLING SOUNDS FROM NEW ORLEANS, UP THROUGH APPALACHIA AND INTO OLD EUROPA, DELIVERING A PERFORMANCE WITH GRIT, GROOVE, AND VIRTUOSITY

Old Salt is an award-winning (2017 European World of Bluegrass Award) Americana band based out of Ghent, Belgium who have been dazzling audiences across Europe since 2015 with their unique blend of original and traditional songs. Their musical inspiration stems from the streets of New Orleans up through Appalachia to the folk revival of the North East USA and into Europe. Old Salt produces exciting arrangements that break the boundaries of their genre and brilliantly combine the different energies of a jam session, the concert hall, and the street to bring a modern folk sound with grit, dynamics, and virtuosity.

The band has released two full-length albums since their inception: ‘Up River Overseas’ (2016) and ‘Commons’ (2019). After being honored to perform at the 2020 Freiburg Kulturbörse in Germany, Old Salt was gearing up for a highly anticipated year of touring to present their album ‘Commons’ to European audiences. Instead, they saw everything fall flat as we all entered the pandemic. Against all odds, the international band managed to facilitate the production of a new EP “live in Room 13” featuring 5 songs that express themes of overcoming hardship. They are proud to release this polished new work on February 11th, 2022 which will then kick off their release tour through Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland.

ABOUT “LIVE IN ROOM 13” Having survived the „Musical Apocalypse“ Old Salt is proud to announce the release of a 5 song live EP recorded in Room 13 in Ghent, Belgium. This EP features timeless old songs whipped up in a new energetic light that represents much of what so many of us have been dealing with through the pandemic. Experiences like monotony, loneliness, hope, and loss all the while confronting these themes as Old Salt does with a smile and a growl.
