This trio play a unique hybrid of early 20th Century music infused with dark Cabaret. 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, old-timey country, and the Blues.
The driving force is Tim’s One-man-band set-up with Kick-drum, foot tambourine and guitar while Jo uses sweet melodies to 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.
The final word goes to Jo Carley herself, "We write the music that we ourselves want to hear".
See you on the Road...
