Interview Bluegrass Today 2022 
“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ Timeless songs were colored with contemporary lyrics and arrangements. The live energy is palpable in the tracks. Old Salt stands for a major international breakthrough…!”
— Keys and Chords by Philip Verhaege
“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Old Salt is definitely recommended for the Americana listener who is intrigued by music with a traditional setting. That’s what Old Salt does and does it incredibly well.”
— Orange Flag Music
“This is quite possibly one of the best versions that I’ve heard (About St. James Infirmary Blues)”
— BluesBlues.co.uk
“They would blow the clouds away at any festival I can think of and it would be good to see an enterprising promoter get them booked over here.”
— At The Barrier
“It is clear that Old Salt has been digging deep into the history of narrative folk music. You can listen for yourself on this EP that is 100% worthwhile.”

Old Salt is an award winning (2017 European World of Bluegrass Award) Americana band based out of Ghent, Belgium who have been dazzling audiences across Europe since 2015 with their unique blend of original and traditional songs. Their musical inspiration stems from the streets of New Orleans up through Appalachia to the folk revival of the North East USA and into Europe. Old Salt produces exciting arrangements that break the boundaries of their genre and brilliantly combine the different energies of a jam session, the concert hall and the street to bring a modern folk sound with grit, dynamics and virtuosity.

The band has released two full length albums since their inception: ‘Up River Overseas’ (2016) and ‘Commons’ (2019). After being honored to perform at the 2020 Freiburg Kulturbörse in Germany, Old Salt was gearing up for a highly anticipated year of touring to present their album ‘Commons’ to European audiences. Instead they saw everything fall flat as we all entered the pandemic. Against all odds, the international band managed to facilitate the production of a new EP “live in Room 13” featuring 5 songs that express themes of overcoming hardship. They are proud to release this polished new work on February 11th 2022 which will then kick off their release tour through Belgium Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland.

Live in Room 13 EP-release is planned for 11 February 2022.

Old Salt performs as a core four member band featuring:

Dan Wall (USA): Lead Vocals – Banjo – Violin – Blues Harp
Lotte Remmen (Belgium): Violin – Vocals
Toby Kuhn (France): Cello or Tomás Peralta (Chile): Double Bass
Johannes Wannyn (Belgium): Guitar – Vocals
