    Salt Creek

    Salt Creek is the latest Bluegrass band to emerge from Western Australia, featuring Troy Cook on guitar, Dave Woodhouse on banjo, Laura Mitchell on fiddle, Noel Smyth on bass and Rachel Armstrong as the newest addition to the group adding a fantastic double fiddle sound. With their 100+ years of combined musicianship Salt Creek can lay bare the heart of driving bluegrass yet touch a much wider audience with their more contemporary music, extending but not excluding the resilient themes of yesteryear.

    Salt Creek's music is a blend of traditional and contemporary bluegrass, including both original songs and imaginative reinventions of non-bluegrass favorites such as the House of the Rising Sun and the Bee-Gee’s "Massachusetts". about Western Australia's famous engineer who designed a pipline which provided water to the Gold Field's from Mundaring in the late 1800's Lucious 3 and 4 part harmonies, superb picking and high energy are trademarks of each Salt Creek performance.
