"Guilfest profile"

Ship Happens! It shouldn’t in land locked Surrey but that hasn’t stopped this co-operative of seasoned musicians, co-led by twice BBC Young Folk Finalist Lee Collinson-James, from firing a respectful broadside at tradition with their energetic rhythm driven mix of traditional arrangements and original material inspired by the sea.

The five piece draw upon their collective influences to create a different flavour to the shanty genre, incorporating subtle elements of punk, jazz and rock into a cohesive Salts sound that has been delighting audiences since their inception.

So come on landlubbers, climb aboard and enjoy the good ship, it’s nautical but nice! - Guilfest



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 and features a mesmerising mix of full speed traditional and original shanties.

The Salts started out with shanty intent, but where they now go is heaven sent.
