What do you get when you combine a Mandolin, an Acoustic Guitar, a Banjo, a Ukulele, an Upright Bass, a Violin, five super talented guys, a big yellow airport shuttle bus, and a road trip? Bluegrass on Steroids, the unparalleled sound that is “Old Salt Union”
With a foundation rooted in American tradition this musical ensemble truly takes their talent to a whole new level. Mixing the old school Bluegrass sound with a hip, uncensored freedom, these five guys have created a musical experience that is fresh, bold, and a hell of a good time. Just two years young, “Old Salt Union” is definitely proving their worth. They have already won the 2013 Indie Music Channel Awards, Best Folk Song “Walk Away” and Best World Song “Flat Baroque” along with The St. Louis Riverfront Times “Best in Bluegrass” in 2013, and “Best Country Band” in 2014. Old Salt Union has played multiple festivals and shared the stage with Bluegrass Greats such as Ricky Skaggs and local favorite Sam Bush. Having played up front and center for a sea of people at Daytona 500 “OSU” knows how to get the party going. Two years and two CD’s in, “Old Salt Union” is well on its way to making it big. I mean really big. Watch for them in a town near you.
