JO LONG & THE PURE DROP [Free entry front lounge show!]

Don't Miss Out
Time: Friday 8.30pm
Cost: FREE

Full band show in the Maple Leaf Lounge!

They play a mix of their own original material and interpretations of traditional songs, with a few obscure covers thrown in for good measure!

Jo has performed and recorded solo, as part of the Arnie Cottrell band, 21stCentury Beatnik and Derrin Nauendorf, as well as session work.

Don is a former member of Broderick (along with Rick) and The Flatville Aces, and has run countless trad sessions across the south.

Singer/songwriter Jezz was a solo artist before joining forces with the Pure Drop.

Rick made his name in jazz and abstract improv, but more recently has performed and recorded with Jon Boden, Nancy Kerr & James Fagin, Keith James, Luke Daniels, to name but a few.

Jo and Don have been performing and recording together for the past 11 years, and in the last 5 years have welcomed Jezz and Rick into the Pure Drop fold.

Jo and Rick are also 2 halves of the duo Foot/Long www.footlongmusic.co.uk

From lilting country ballads to soaring 4-part folk harmonies, virtuoso bass to guitar-driven foot-stompers, there is something for everyone here!
