British based Folk musicians Land and Salt have just released their debut EP 'Salve' on their own label, Saltworks Records. The husband and wife duo, Charlie and Marie, return after a long break from the British acoustic scene, having once been described as "The best in Contemporary Folk" (Rambles).
Discussing the album they explain, "Salve is a work of grace. It was written on our hearts for many years as we lived out our lives.
Above all it speaks of unity- pure and simple. A unity born from a man who humbled himself enough to wash the feet of his betrayer, not just his friends.
Unity with God and with our fellow brother and sister. Songs of bearing and forgiving deep down in our bellies - not a shallow sorry in words; but hearty redemption in our hands. We have used our voices and our hands to try to blend rhythm and beauty. Driven by guitar and vocals, but embelished with banjo, violin, cello, concertina and some meaty percussion."
They celebrate a spirit of collaboration and work alongside other musicians to bring together a collective of praise across an ecumenical landscape.
