The Art House Southampton CIC, 178 Above Bar Street, Southampton, GB
Angelic vocals and virtuoso double bass.
Songs about death, loss, despair, sex, death, cups of tea and unwanted pregnancy.
Their repertoire encompasses original and traditional material, with a sprinkling of songs from Gram Parsons, Richard Thompson, Gillian Welch, Ivor Cutler and others.
Jo Long sings divinely and plays the acoustic guitar.
Rick Foot plays double bass divinely and sings.
The duo grew out of the four-piece band Jo Long & the Pure Drop, combining Jo's beautiful voice with Rick's distinctive melodic and atmospheric bass playing to produce a stripped down and intimate collection of songs about death and tea.
