Jenn and Laura-Beth have each been a presence on the UK folk scene for a number of years. They were brought together by the close-knit and progressive Glasgow folk
music community, spending lots of their time jamming an eclectic mix of folk music from across the globe, particularly the UK, Scandinavia and America. The years of playing together brought a
deep affinity between the two artists; their rhythms lock tightly, their voices blend so closely that it’s often hard to tell them apart. They have developed a natural telepathy: two musicians
Jenn Butterworth is one of Scotland’s foremost female guitarists, and has toured extensively with the award winning Anna Massie Band. As an accompanist she is in high demand, her most recent collaborations have involved Songs of Separation (BBC Folk Awards Album of the Year), Claire Hastings, Phil Cunningham and Fiddler’s Bid. Anyone that came to see Claire Hastings at Village Concerts in Spring 2017 will recognise Jenn as the brilliant guitarist and vocalist that accompanied Claire on that evening.
Laura-Beth Salter takes influence from the Oldtime and Bluegrass music that her parents played whilst she was growing up in Lincolnshire. After spending time studying a Traditional Music Degree in Newcastle she became heavily involved in the folk scene. She is a founding member of The Shee and her most recent collaborations involve Shooglenifty and The MacLean Project led by the world renowned Perthshire singer Dougie MacLean.
