The Salts at Croydon Folk Club

The Salts present traditional and original sea-shanties as you’ve never heard them before. They are a shanty-punk band, who give a Rock ’n’ Roll kick to traditional sea-songs.

Doing for shanties what the Pogues did for folk, they create one of the most exciting and energetic folk concepts of recent times.

They fire a mighty, yet respectful, broadside at the traditional, with banjo, mandolin, guitars, double bass and percussion to the fore.
