Jo Carley and the Old Dry Skulls are a band like no other. They combine Blues, Skiffle, Calypso and Rockabilly with a sweeping vaudeville twist. Jo Carley is the wild and dark demonic music-hall mistress sent to predict hell to entertain and amaze you. Tim Carley churns out blues-tinged rhythms on an old archtop guitar with fellow fiend James Le Huray providing the final ingredients of the spell, in the shape of double bass and banjo.

This trio are known for their unique live show, transporting the audience to a bygone era when witches and black magic were rife. It is music that makes people wanna shake their bones!
