Salt and Blue

Sadly no more, South London duo Salt & Blue were multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Jessica Cahill, described by Nigel Eaton as “one of the best hurdy-gurdy players in Britain, with a superb driving style”, and the uniquely haunting cellist Jakob Kaye. Together they have been described as spine-tingling and hypnotic.

Salt & Blue’s inspiration derived from many sources: Jessica’s love of traditional music from England, France and Eastern Europe; Jakob’s Icelandic heritage, and the passion that both of them have for all forms of contemporary music.

Taking its cue from the hurdy-gurdy, their musicwas primarily drone-based, and explored both traditional and original material, with unconventional use of instruments and voice.
