Halloween Special with Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls
For Halloween it's the eagerly anticiapated return of the extraordinary Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls, performing here as part of their The 'Shake Them Rattlin' Bones' tour of the UK and Europe!
Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls combine the voodoo rhythms of 1930's ska and the blues with old timey vaudeville cabaret. Music that makes people wanna shake their bones!
Dedicated to the subversive, the world of Jo Carley and the Old Dry Skulls is dark, animated and unusual. Seeking to amuse and draw the audience into an underworld filled with wonder, the macabre and the imagination they combine elements of Vaudeville, Skiffle, early horror films, early ska, calypso, old-timey country, and the Blues. This trio play a unique hybrid of early 20th Century music infused with dark Cabaret.
The driving force is Tim’s One-man-band set-up with Kick-drum, hi-hat and guitar while Jo’s sweet melodies tell terrible things. This is made even more bewitching as she switches from fiddle to mandolin to washboard. They are joined by James Le Huray on double bass and banjo.
A band that lives to perform, Jo Carley & The Old Dry Skulls have been touring extensively up and down the UK and all across Europe at some of the best festivals and clubs on the circuit.
