  1. Chris T-T’s Midnight Campfire

    The days are short, and the nights are cold and dark. Why, that’s the perfect time to listen to the cold, dark songs of Salter Cane!

    So before you get all festive for the Christmas break, come on down to The Brunswick in Hove on Thursday, December 18th for the triple bill of Wintertime music that is Chris T-T’s Midnight Campfire:

    Tickets are £7 and available online.

    We’ll be opening the show so make sure to get there nice and early. Also: there may be mince pies. See you there.

  2. The new-look Salter Cane at the Prince Albert

    Here is your one week’s advance notice: Salter Cane is playing in the Prince Albert pub in Brighton on Wednesday, July 23rd.

    We’ll be playing on a roster of four bands. The other three are Bibliothek, The Satellite Vines, and Sweet Jonny. We all share the same rehersal space, the Black Bunker in Brighton.

    Entry on the door is just £4 …that’s just a pound per band.

    We’re really excited about this gig—it’s the first one with our new drummer, Emily. There’s a real excitement at band practice with a new addition to Salter Cane, and we can’t wait to share the new twist on the line-up with everyone.

    So come along on the 23rd for the unveiling of the newest version of Salter Cane. Doors open at 8pm and we’ll be on sometime between 9:30pm and 10pm. See you there.

  3. Jamie’s Last Gig

    Join us this Friday, March 7th at The Con Club in Lewes. We’re going to be playing a (free!) gig with our friends Caramel Jack.

    This is going to be a bittersweet gig. ‘Twill be sweet because we always love playing with Caramel Jack. But that is tempered with the sadness that comes with knowing that this will be Jamie’s last gig with the band.

    Yes, Jamie is moving on from Salter Cane. We’ll miss him. If you want one last chance to see him rocking that drum kit, then I’ll see you on Friday evening. Doors are at 8pm.

  4. In the studio

    Things have been quiet around here lately. That’s partly because we’ve had our heads down, getting some new songs recorded and mixed at Metway Studios.

    We’ve got four new songs in the can. Now we just need to figure out what to do with them. They will certainly appear as part of an album further down the road, but maybe we’ll release them as an EP first …just like we did with Black Swollen River: all the songs on that EP later appeared on the album Sorrow.

    The recording went well. We captured a good live in-room sound, and we’ve layered on a bit of discrete organ here and there. Hopefully it won’t be too long ‘till you hear the results.

  5. Salter Cane and Arbouretum at The Albert

    It seems like it’s been ages since our last gig. That’s probably because it has been ages since our last gig. It’s time to break this streak of live inactivity.

    Salter Cane will be playing in The Prince Albert in Brighton on Sunday, November 11th. We’ll be opening for Arbouretum, which is very exciting: Chris is a fan.

    So if you fancy an evening of our dark tales followed by Arbouretum’s expansive guitar solos, grab yourself a ticket—they’re just £7.50.

    It’s going to be good to play a gig again after such a long break. I’m looking forward to it.

    See you there.
