About Old Salt Union
Old Salt Union was formed in 2011 by long-time friends Dustin Eiskant (guitar/ lead vocal), Ryan Murphey (banjo), and Justin Wallace (mandolin/ piano). In May of 2012, Old Salt Union became complete with the addition of John Brighton (violin/ mandolin) and Jesse Farrar (bass). Each member of Old Salt Union fills multiple roles in the band by playing various instruments and contributing vocal harmonies. Amongst the five men in Old Salt Union, from ages 23-30, there is over 70 years of musical training and experience. This diversity allows for flexibility in composition and in live performances. The end result is a well-rounded high-energy sound, with obvious bluegrass roots.
