Album of the Week – Laura-Beth Salter and Ali Hutton ‘ From The Ground’

Written by on May 29, 2024



This album is a cinematic love letter to nature from two exceptional musical talents on the Scottish folk and roots music scene.

LAURA-BETH SALTER (Kinnaris Quintet, The Shee) and ALI HUTTON (Ross Ainslie & Ali Hutton, Treacherous Orchestra) have come together to create a Scottish soundscape masterpiece with a powerful message at its core.

It is contemporary and captivating, and carries an urgent message for its listeners: we must cherish our planet and celebrate how connecting with our natural environment can benefit our mental health.

Laura-Beth said: “This album is our ode to nature and the solace we and so many others find in it.”

Ali added: “The tracks are sonic narratives, laid out in a way that hopefully will help people visualise the themes and emotions that we intended to convey.”
