Old Salt Union is an Illinois-based, five piece newgrass/Americana outfit featuring Dustin Eiskant , Ryan Murphey , Justin Wallace, John Brighton and Jesse Farrar.
The group features a host of traditional instrumentation including fiddle, mandolin, banjo, acoustic guitar, and upright bass. Their music is primarily comprised of original songs that blend a diverse range of influences. The resulting sound is that of a modern day string band along the lines of Yonder Mountain and Leftover Salmon.
Eiskant, Murphey, and Brighton sat down with Ryan Spearman in Studio A to talk about their latest release, their recent tour of the West, and what lies over the horizon.
