In January 2018, the A:R Trio disappeared into the deep snow-covered woods of Chelsea, Québec for a few days, to record at James Stephens's Stove Studio. The result is All the Salt, a collection of fourteen songs and tune medleys, some traditional, some not, from both sides of the pond. The multi-talented Ian Bell, whose song The Mermaid and the Swallow appears on the album, created the sleeve design and artwork.
Our thanks to the following, without whose help this could not have happened:
- James, for a wonderfully relaxed and enjoyable few days of recording.
- Val Robb and Joan Weed, for great food and hospitality.
- Jeff and Joan Weed and The Old Sod Folk Music Society, for organising concerts to help us pay the bills.
- Jane and Tim Gleaves, for looking after Lucy and Will in Sheffield while Jess and Rich were recording in Canada.
