2nd September                
 Hailing from two female supergroups, Jenn Butterworth & Laura-Beth Salter combine mandolin, guitar and two powerful voices to bring you soulful harmonies and tune sets full of drive and character. Jenn Butterworth is one of Scotland’s foremost female guitarists.

 Laura-Beth Salter takes influence from the Blues, Oldtime and Bluegrass music that her parents played whilst she was growing up in Lincolnshire, and after spending time studying a Traditional Music Degree in Newcastle she became heavily involved in the folk scene. Both girls are based in Glasgow and are integral members of the city’s exploding folk scene.
