THE SKEKSES Old-time folk meets the unholy blues hrough songs of murder, magic and monsters, carried by banjo, guitar, rattling percussion and Elly Herget’s stratospheric moan. These days, Magic City/Rough Shop’s Anne Tkach takes time out of her jet-set schedule to play upright bass with us. JJ Hamon of Demonlover and Magic City also hangs around occasionally. RUSTY NAIL are influenced by Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners, as well asThe Pogues, The Tossers and Flogging Molly. Rusty Nail’s sound was created through the combination of these Irish and Folk Rock roots and instrumentation of mandolin, fiddle, dulcimer, accordion, tin whistle and banjo with guitar, the sound was authentic and inspired.
