In the summer of 2016 I met Old Salt’s violinist Lotte Remmen. We immediately connected to each other on account of our similar musical voyage as lapsed-Classical turned folk-jazz-jamming musicians. What started as a study project, a challenge to explore as many musical styles and technical tricks as we could get our hands on, became in 2019 a real touring stage band, resulting in a mosaic of Classical and Traditional, Jazz and Funk, tunes from the Balkans to the Appalachians, mottled with originals and improvisations from the deepest corners of our curiosity-driven brains.

We headed to the studio in early January 2020, and an album should be forthcoming later this year.
