When founding member of the Hackensaw Boys, Rob Bullington, retired from that old-time ensemble after more than a decade on the road – performing in cities from Los Angeles to Amsterdam with artists like Cake, Modest Mouse and The Black Crowes – he picked up an electric guitar and convinced fellow RVA musicians Ben Pruett, Mike Clark and Brian Ahnmark to band together as Flight of Salt. Expect big vocal harmonies, expert song craft and Americana-infused passages of lasting glory.
