The four piece rag tag troupe, likened to a bastardised Janis Joplin Bluegrass garnished with your old pa’s ashes for some hints of old timey flavour and 1940’s skiffle, feature a lineup of banjos, sousaphone, national guitar, pots ’n’ pans and the skeletons from your closet. The Long Johns are: Sian Evans,
Steve Buchanan, Skritch and Paul Watson.
