Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls combine the voodoo rhythms of 1930’s ska, and the blues with old-timey vaudeville cabaret.  It’s 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, old-timey country, and the Blues. This trio plays 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 vocal delivery sounds like the leader of Satan’s own gospel choir. 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.

New album ‘Shake Them Rattlin’ Bones’ out May 2019 on CD and LP. Nine tales that lure you between the cracks of reality and take you downtown to the underworld, where the hobos and down and outs are up to no good, jug bands hustle for change on poor man’s corner, zombies walk the night and the Voodoo Priestess rules all…

For fans of C.W. Stoneking, The Tiger Lillies, The Dead Brothers, Wilmoth Houdini, and Wanda Jackson
