  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Lansdown Rock

    We like Lewes. And every time we’ve played there, Lewes has liked us.

    We’re going to be back in Lewes on Saturday, January 21st in The Lansdown pub. It’s just us this time: no support band. So we’ll be playing all night: you can expect two Salter Cane sets—double the fun.

    We’ll start around 7:30pm. That’s your Saturday night entertainment in Lewes all covered then. See you then.

  5. Chatham County Line

    If you’re in Brighton on Tuesday evening, take a stroll down to the seafront and pop in to The Coalition. That’s where Chatham County Line will be playing with support from Salter Cane.

    This concert is quite special: it marks the ten year anniversary of The Gilded Palace Of Sin, a Brighton institution that has been a huge supporter of Salter Cane over the years.

    We were honoured to be asked to play this gig but it almost didn’t happen. I was supposed to be speaking at a web conference in America on the same day. But I managed to get my speaking slot switched ‘round to the day before. So now myself and Jessica will be flying back the night before the gig, landing on the day of the gig, dropping off our suitcases, grabbing our instruments and heading straight to the soundcheck. Jet’n’lag’n’rock’n’roll!

    This is going to be an early-evening show. We’re going to take to the stage at 7:30pm so get down there early. See you there!
