Salt

First there were the BE GOOD TANYAS. Then there was PO' GIRL. Now there's Po' Girl stars/lynchpins ALLISON RUSSELL & AWNA TEIXERA aka SALT - and the good news is they're all in the same class... Music never stops changing and good music - of any sort - takes bits and pieces of the great, the gut-wrenching, and the beautiful and somehow forms them into something new: Salt are folky in it's widest and best wingspan - in the way Edith Piaf, Ma Rainey, Elizabeth Cotton and Billy Holiday are folk. Salt, both as songwriters and interpretive singers, are very much the torch bearers for that vital tradition, forever lonesome, defiant, tired, resolute, proud, hot & sick with love and putting those words in your ear again, for the first time, like you never quite heard them before!
