Salt of The Earth, Friday December 5th @ 8pm

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Straightforward and unassuming style, a sound that is stripped down to its core, and songs that come straight from within, Salt of the Earth formed early in the spring of 2003. The members are Lynne Reif on lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and occasional harmonica, Mike Schrand on bass, baritone guitar and vocals, Jake Brookman ..o and Jim Hieger on lead acoustic guitar, banjo, and vocals. Both Lynne and Mike have a history playing and singing in the St. Louis-based Roots-Rock band Belle Starr (1996-2002). Jake is a classically trained cellist who has played in groups ranging from symphony orchestras to punk bands, and Jim is a self-taught all-natural lead player with performance roots in the “jam band” circle. Salt of the Earth features Lynne’s songwriting, which aims to chew on life in a heartfelt way, and spans the genres of pop, folk and blues. The band puts down rhythmic instrumentals complemented by rich melody and harmony lines. Sit back and enjoy-
