The Long Johns

The Long Johns are the twang of the banjo, the rumble of the sousaphone and the ring of the spittoon, the creak of the door, the crow of the rooster, the stomping of floorboards and the hammering of the chain gang.

A four piece possé, The Long Johns come together to play spooky country with that old timey swing, peppered with the spiciest of flavours to deliver songs of hope, loss and hauntings.

Featuring a line up of banjos, sousaphone, national guitar and pots and pans, The Long Johns – Sian Evans, Steve Buchanan, Skritch and Paul Watson are preparing a tincture of dark country and barnyard bangers. And, like the cure-all tonics of old, The Long Johns are good for what ails you.
