Welcome to the official website of The Salts

Twenty first century folk fires a respectful broadside at the traditional.

The Salts are a co-operative of seasoned musicians, creating what is fast becoming one of the most exciting and energetic folk concepts of recent times.

Indvidually The Salts, fronted by twice BBC Young Folk Finalist Lee Collinson-James, have circumnavigated the Commonwealth with tours of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Their debut album, She Rises is now available here and features a mesmerising mix of full speed traditional and original shanties.

“The Salts are destined for greatness, that is clear! Your collective sound is kick-ass tight and you gave our rafters the dusting they long needed!”-Steve Poole, Ram Club, Thames Ditton

“…… weirdly innovative & brilliant pirate folkers, The Salts…”- Daisy, 17 -iquitelikegigs.wordpress.com

“The Salts, sea shanties with attitude – brilliant!”- Martin Hall, children’s book writer
